Work History

LinkedIn has my full work history, antiseptically-listed, but this has a bit more narrative.

The summer after high school, I worked on the horticulture_grounds_crew at Hamilton College. This would've been 1996

Other jobs, until I have a chance to fill out the narrative a bit:

Philadelphia, 1997-2001

Boston, 2001 - 2005

I moved up to Boston basically for explo, and because I really really didn't like Philadelphia.

New York, 2005 - present

I moved to New York for alison, and when I got there I had to figure out what to do with my 'portable skills'. Hint: change career paths.

My first work in the game industry was as a Quality Assurance tester for Scholastic's Digital Media group working on the I Spy series on CD. I learned to write excellent bug reports and to reproduce the most finicky of errors; I also worked closely with the developer on the project and learned to prioritize bugs within a production schedule. Read a review of the title.

Freelance Interregnum - 2009-2010

When Gamelab folded, I stitched together freelance project management for a while, with the institute_of_play and working_library, the weirdest job I ever kinda-loved.

Gamestar - 2009 - 2012

Before long, e-line_media picked up gamestar_mechanic and I was back to working the project I'd saved from the ashes of Gamelab.

BrainPOP 2013 - present

When E-Line decided to move to Seattle, I faced a choice: start my own studio, freelance project manage again (probably outside games), or find a larger company to join that was doing work I respected. That company, and my decision, was brainpop.
