As a critical psychologist, I am interested in theorizing subjectivity vis-à-vis ideology (see Academics) through radical qualitative research (e.g., discourse analysis). In my praxis, I draw on a number of theoretical resources, which can be situated within the discursive turn (see Research Interests)

In addition to being a scholar-activist, I am a fine artist with a background in film, theater, and music (see Aesthetics). 

I hold two terminal degrees: a Ph.D. in Psychology: Consciousness and Society from the University of West Georgia (UWG) and an M.F.A. in Independent Film and Digital Imaging from Governors State University (GSU)

At UWG, I taught the following undergraduate courses part-time over a four-year period: Personal RelationshipsIntroduction to General Psychologyand Advanced Seminar: Film & Psychology (aka Psychoanalytic Film Theory). The last course is an original one that I developed, wherein we mostly discussed Screen Theory v. Lacanian Film Theory. 

At GSU, my thesis project was an esoteric surreal drama titled Alchemy in Hyde Park. It was the first feature-length narrative film entirely set and shot in the neighborhood of Hyde Park (Chicago, IL). 

Finally, I hold a B.A. in Theatre with a minor Music from the American University in Cairo, where I directed Harold Pinter's The Lover as my thesis project.
