My passions include game design, leadership, teaching, and community-building. I am currently starting a small independent game studio and producing “Project Colony” (working title); I was a Producer, Game Designer, and Lead Developer with TEAM JEFF; and I love to volunteer with organizations like the Awesome Foundation in my spare time. I am also very interested in how rapidly evolving technologies affect our use and understanding of identity, ethics, privacy, security, and communications. My other hobbies include homebrewing, music, cooking (particularly using sous vide or smoking techniques), video games, and marksmanship.
