I am a historian of early modern piracy, Colonial America, the Atlantic World, and maritime history. I earned my PhD from King’s College London in 2017. My dissertation, entitled: “The Crimes of Piracy and its Punishment: The Performance of Maritime Supremacy in the British Atlantic World, 1670 – 1830,” examines British maritime and legal supremacy in its early American colonies in regards to maritime piracy. I use the public executions of pirates in London and the Americas as my narrative to see how the colonists reacted to increased legal restrictions by British authorities, which ultimately led to new ideas of autonomy. I have been published in History Today, BBC History Revealed, Aeon-Psyche, and Truly*Adventurous. I have appeared on podcasts such as You’re Dead To Me, History Hit with Dan Snow, and History Extra among others. I have been a featured historian in BBC4’s Britain’s Outlaws: Highwaymen, Pirates, and Rogues, History Channel’s The Curse of Oak Island and Beyond Oak Island along, and Netflix’s docu-series The Lost Pirate Kingdom. My first book, Why We Love Pirates: The Hunt for Captain Kidd and How He Changed Piracy Forever was published in 2020 and my next book, Pirate Queens: The Lives of Anne Bonny and Mary Read will be out in the first half of 2022.
