While my research interests lie mostly in the intersection of interactive media (video games specifically) and the writing of history, what I love the most is teaching. I’ve taught a variety of classes in history, film, English and German departments around Michigan since 2002, and enjoyed it so much that I can’t think of anything else I would rather do. In my free time, I enjoy playing board games, learning the guitar and going to concerts.
