Regardless of the hat he is wearing at the time, Jomo Greenidge has been an avid gamer since the age of 7. His diverse background includes education, theology, community development, event management, and media design. For over 25 years, Jomo has been utilizing those skills on the front line of non-profit youth & young adult engagement programs in a variety of roles. From direct instruction, curriculum development, to fundraising and case management…he’s seen it all.
His current project is the Game It Up Initiative, where he is rallying the gaming community of Oregon & SW Washington to help improve educational outcomes. When not blogging, designing, coding, prototyping, or spending time with his family and friends, you can catch him on Xbox Live attempting to improve his pathetic gamerscore.
He lives in Northeast Portland with his wife and two sons.
