I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. My primary research interests include the Presidency, Congress, and general political communication. My dissertation provides an update to Neustadt’s (1960) concept of professional reputation, and examines how the President builds that reputation with Congress in a digital age.

I received my Master’s in Political Science from Florida Atlantic University in 2018. Prior to that, I served as Communications Director for the American Conservation Coalition Campus and as a contributor to several political news organizations.
