PhD student in Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media at North Carolina State University. Master’s degree in English Literature completed at California State University Northridge. My interests are primarily in game studies, specifically the use of games as a means of exploring complex issues towards pedagogical or didactic ends. I have a background in narrative studies and am fascinated by the new sorts of narrative structures that are developing in an order to accommodate player agency. Lastly, I am interested in physical computing and embodied play, specifically spaces of play and the virtual specters that might come to dwell in them.
