I teach and write and eat and play.

My first book, Super Mario Bros. 2, came out in Fall 2014. Learn more here.

From 2011 to 2016, I contributed to Kill Screen, an arts & culture company interested in telling the world why games matter. Find out why here.

My work has also been featured at The Atlantic, Billboard Magazine, Paste, Gamasutra, Kotaku, Polygon, Longreads, and more.

For over a decade I've written on dozens of topics for local, national, and international publications. I'd love to write for yours.

Past homes include: Detroit, MI; Ann Arbor, MI; Melbourne, AUS; Lille, FRA; Portland, ME; and Boston, MA.

I now live in Georgia with my wife, our son, a tuxedo cat named Sammy, and a mutt named Maxine.
