Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
I'm looking to apply my training as a behavior analyst to the design of games for social good. I'd be willing to work with any person, or any organization, that has that as its mission.
Games you’ve worked on ...
None yet. I'd love to get started.
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
I've had five years of doctoral training in behavior analysis. I understand quite a bit about behavior and learning, and I have a coherent theoretical perspective to bring to the table.
I've done a bit of research, and am quite good at breaking things down to their component to figure out what works (I have done some basic research). I'm interested in tackling issues that fewer people have investigated (both in terms of research and games), so I'm very interested in being creative in all my activities.
On top of my training, I like to think I have great interpersonal skills. Of course I don't expect you to take that at face value, so feel free to contact me on facebook, twitter, or linkedin to kickstart a conversation!
Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
Civilization Series - I loved these games as a kid. It was one of the first series I ever played. Not only was it a lot of fun, but I learned a lot about history.
Age of Empires series - As above, I learned a lot about history.
Final Fantasy VII - This is of course a crowd favorite. For me, it was the game that established my lifelong interest in role-playing games. I realized how immersive a game could be with a good story.
