Outside of professional life, happiness is a night of Pikmin, hefeweizen and midnight taco runs with my costume-designing little sister.

 

I come from a family of Detroit Police Officers-turned-small business owners—a tough, barbecue-loving bunch who do their best work at midmorning.

I spend my free hours getting lost in the library's nonfiction stacks, perfecting egg recipes, running, and studying game design. Play is central to my life and work.
