Hi there! You’re probably really curious as to what all I’ve put out there to entertain gamers and others. I’m glad you asked!
I have published print work in more than 30 BATTLETECH game products in print and digital formats, including two solo works: The Wars of Reaving and Handbook: House Kurita. As Assistant Line Developer for the BATTLETECH game line from 2008 – 2016, I crafted the game universe’s story arcs, campaigns, and product lines, as well as wrote extensively, edited, and produced the majority of books for the line. During that time, I also created and oversaw the BattleTech Turning Points digital campaign line, which published more than 20 different releases at the time of my departure. I’ve also published 8 short stories set in the BATTLETECH universe. (You can see the full list of printed titles that I’ve worked on here.)
I’m also the primary author of Games’ Most Wanted, published in July 2013, which takes a relaxed, whimsical look at games and gamer culture in society.
Frequently, I am asked to sit as a judge for various communications and marketing awards, including IAMTW’s Scribes Awards, the American Advertising Federation club awards, and the Serious Play Game Awards. I also do contracted work for various nonprofits, creating marketing campaigns and providing website and other content for their communications plans.
And that’s just my freelance work.
In the daylight, I’m currently the marketing/communications manager for a large nonprofit association in the science/safety sector. I’ve been working for nonprofits in some capacity over the last ten years, all in the Washington, DC area. Some of my roles have included:
- managing print publications
- writing/editing online newsletters, magazines, comics, brochures, and program guides
- website creation, construction, maintenance, and content generation
- social media marketing strategy and implementation
- photography and video production
- in-house journalist
- scriptwriting and storyboarding
I’m also the recipient of more than 25 awards, ranging from marketing to writing to game production.
And if that’s not enough, between 2008-2015, I also wrote exhibition, features, transportation, and hockey reviews for WeLoveDC, a site of which I helped co-found and managed as the Editor-at-Large. My topics usually covered various exhibits, programs, and interviews from National Geographic, the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum and National Museum of the American Indian, the International Spy Museum, and many experts, explorers, photographers, musicians, and other interesting people around the world. I also provided game recaps and team news from the Washington Capitals from 2008 – 2014.
