What am I up to right now?

Last updated: January 13, 2017

I’m working on my PhD at Concordia University in Montreal. I’m doing a research-creation project on autobiographical games, under the supervision of Dr. Rilla Khaled. I’m also one of the student reps for the Technoculture, Art, and Games (TAG) lab.

I am taking two classes this semester: “Interdisciplinary Practices in Design” with Christopher Moore, and “Chaplin: Comedy and Global Response” with Maria Corrigan.

My main videogame project of the moment is Dominique Pamplemousse and Dominique Pamplemousse in: “Combinatorial Explosion!” — the long-anticipated (okay, probably not really) sequel to Dominique Pamplemousse in “It’s All Over Once The Fat Lady Sings!” It promises to be even weirder than the original, which is no small feat.

I am also currently working on a new game with Jess Marcotte called The Truly Terrific Travelling Troubleshooter. It’s a physical/digital hybrid game designed to be contained in a small suitcase.

For the third year in a row, I’m co-organizing the Queerness and Games conference, which will be held in Los Angeles in Spring 2017.

For fun, I play euphonium with the Chaotic Insurrection Ensemble, sing tenor with the PopTones Vocal Ensemble, and jam with friends in a band called the Love & Friendship Bedroom Serenade Orchestra. I also sometimes perform at a monthly open mic night called GENDER B(L)ENDER.
