Hi! I am a product designer, game maker, and developer who enjoys creating interactive experiences and helping people to become their best selves. I've done a lot of community organization including co-founding Code Liberation and the Game Devs of Color Expo. I love finding ways to increase empathy through interactive media – many of my personal projects center around the human experience and tackle issues related to interpersonal relationships, self-expression, gender, and race. This is a way to support my unfunded work including boundary-pushing games like SweetXheart, diversity-focused events that I organize, knowledge-sharing writing that helps others like How to Become a Public Speaker in 1 Year, and free public speaking appearances for schools and low-cost events.
