Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
I'm strongly interested in applying game mechanics to learning situations, so I'm up for anything that experiments with that intersection
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
I taught for twenty years and have been writing longer than that. Most of my teaching experience has been in informal settings, so I'm not necessarily trapped by discussions of traditional classrooms, standards, and traditional assessments. I'm also adept at writing instructional materials like user manuals. I've also recently fallen into voiceover work, and could help out with scratch tracks.
Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
Dungeons and Dragons introduced me to my first real group of friends.
Amtgard taught me how to write characters and how-tos, and how to improv.
Rock Band helped me start getting over my stage fright and my fear of microphones.
