Hi there.

I’m Alyssa. I study the intersection of emerging and legacy media and mediated culture through reading, watching, listening, trial and error, and observation.

I’m currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the department of Media, Journalism, and Film at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I received my Ph.D. in Media and Communication at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio (2019). I’ve previously written about podcasts (2008), and music festivals (2011). From 2011-2016, I worked in training and communication for a software company on the product development and implementation team in Cincinnati, Ohio. My current research focuses on the convergence of old and new mediums and the way that manifests itself on the YouTube platform, including organizational communication strategies, performances of gender, and digital migration.

Thanks for stopping by!
