My research focuses on replay and repetition in interactive media, television and avant-garde and experimental film. At USC, I assisted in the development and implementation of the online journal Vectors (www.vectorsjournal.net) and worked on research projects at the Institute for Multimedia Literacy and in serious game design for the EA Game Innovation Lab and the Institute for Creative Technologies. In a previous life, I worked in software and game development, and assisted in the production of an educational series for high schools and public television.
