My academic journey has been circuitous. I started out studying Psychology and Mathematics at UNSW, before completing my honours in English Literature. I ended up in the Politcs department for my PhD - Politics was a broad church, and it was there that I was able to write about Literature and Philosophy in the way I wanted. During my PhD I started working for the Learning Centre at UNSW and also tutoring and lecturing in International Relations. I spent 10 years working in the Learning Centre, where I produced two academic skills books for MacMillan Education: Essentials of Essay Writing (2017) and Reading at University (2020). I also continued to teach courses on IR, Literature, Sociology, and Film. In 2020 I moved to the School of Social and Political Sciences at USYD where I teach courses in Politics and Popular Culture, International Security, etc. I am currently working on a book about the Intellectual Dark Web - Joe Rogan, Jordan Peterson, and so on. It will hopefully be out late 2023 through Routledge.
