Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
I am interested in partnering with anyone working on gamification and education, particularly higher education.

Goblin Toboggan, Faberge Chickens, Flipyard Shipyard, Restaurateur, and countless incomplete tabletop game projects.

I am currently pursuing a PhD in Leadership Studies and Higher Education Leadership and my research if focused on the intersections between gamification, student learning, and student development.
