I am a play scholar, games and media literacy researcher, and digital arts teacher. I am active in the game studies community, with multiple publications and conference presentations. My research focuses on the phenomenology of play, play in social environments, play and performance, the player narrative experience, and ludonarratology. Lately I have been exploring communities of play and social play through karaoke. I am currently a PhD Candidate and instructor for the Informatics department at the University of California, Irvine, and associate faculty at Saddleback College.

I live with my kids in sunny Irvine, California.
