I'm currently a professor at University of Washington and Pepperdine University. This fall I'll be moving down to LA (from Seattle) for a new position at Pepperdine as the director of a new game design lab. I'll also be hanging out at USC lots.
As you can probably guess, I play and study games and gaming culture, especially with regard to education and learning. I used to design games for the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and I have an art degree.
I'm going to attempt to live car-free while in LA. It's easy in Seattle... probably going to be a challenge down there... I'll probably be bringing my bike.
