Projects and Team

Current Projects

  • This semester (Spring 2014), we are exploring the game design process by creating a tabletop game revolving around the theme of a snowball fight.
  • In February of this year, we participated in the Spring 2014 Marist GameJam and, in collaboration with several Marist students, designed a cooperative puzzle tabletop game.

See About Me to learn about my scholarship and teaching interests. I am interested in exploring how games can foster learning both in and outside of educational settings and the benefits of board games in general and cooperative gaming in particular. I enjoy a variety of tabletop games, especially role-playing games (e.g., Pathfinder) and cooperative games (e.g., Pandemic). On the digital side, I appreciate good adventure games, especially those with an engaging narrative (e.g., Grim Fandango, Dreamfall).
