Technical Director, UCB Theatre NY
Why hello! I'm the Technical Director at UCB NY. Across the country I perform the show/panel 404ing It, which is a comedy show aimed at shining a light on great stuff from the internet!
Managing Editor, Waypoint
Hi! I'm the brand-spanking new Managing Editor at Waypoint, Vice's new gaming site, formerly of Zam and Polygon! I also host the Idle Weekend Podcast on the Idle Thumbs network, teach game design at the Berklee College of Music, make tiny games, volunteer as an EMT, run many miles, enjoy combat sports and talk way too much about my adorable pets.
