I am the director of digital media at The JASON Project. I am in charge of developing the video games and learning interactives. My projects range from 3D downloadable games that require 8+ hours of game play to quick and easy vocabulary exercises. All of my games are designed with a deep understanding of student cognition balanced with the realities of a classroom. My work has been recognized as a finalist for best educational game in 2009 with the Association for Educational Publishers.
Prior to this work, I was the associate director of instructional design at Public Broadcasting Services. I have taught science education at the graduate and undergraduate level at Marquette University, and am currently completing my PhD in Education.
