Prior to iCivics, I led Blue State Digital’s DC-based strategic engagements with such clients as the NAACP, the Entertainment Software Association, and Human Rights Campaign. I conceived and oversaw execution of the United State Holocaust Memorial Museum’s “Remember Me” campaign, which won two Webbys in 2010.
At Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, I researched and developed new tools for legal education and helped found Hub2, a program using virtual technologies to encourage public engagement in urban design. That program continues to operate as the Engagement Game Lab at Emerson College.
I also helped found the Center for Legal Aid Education, a national professional development organization that created the nation’s first online and blended Continuing Legal Education programs to teach practice skills to poverty lawyers.
Better learning is my passion; video games happen to be one of the best ways to achieve it.
