Since 2017, I've worked as the Editorial Director of Carnegie Mellon University's ETC Press, an open access publishing press that specializes in trade and peer-reviewed books, academic journals, conference proceedings, and editorial content for the general public. Our focus is on the intersection of entertainment technologies (e.g. VR, Machine Learning) and its impact on society.

In 2000, I earned my Masters in Journalism from the University of California at Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism. After graduation, I worked as a reporter, editor, multimedia storyteller, and senior producer for Wired magazine,, and MIT’s Technology Review. (In 2001, I helped launch Wired's first downloadable and streaming audio program.

Since I left the world of magazine journalism, I've written three books (Dungeon & Dreamers, Frankenstein's Legacy, and Learn Work Play), edited several books and journals, and founded a small literary collective that published two books and four literary journals. I've also worked as a copywriter and content designer for individuals and small companies that want to build Wordpress-powered websites, implement sound SEO practices, and improve branding and audience engagement.

In between my book publishing and magazine journalism career, I was an associate professor in Ball State University's Department of Journalism where I co-founded and co-directed the Center for Emerging Media Design & Development, a graduate program that teaches design thinking, cross-platform storytelling, and usability.

I'm a member of PEN America and the Association of Writers and Writing Programs. And I've served on the programming board for South by Southwest Interactive since 2003.
