About Me

Since the 1990’s I have been designing games in all their many forms: board games, card games, digital games, and more. Since my start as a designer, my mission been inclusive and socially conscious games. I founded my research lab, Tiltfactor at Hunter College in 2003. It has since moved to Dartmouth College, where I have been teaching since 2008. At Tiltfactor we research and design systems to fight inequity. We research and publish that research about games, both analog and digital. I am also the CEO of Resonym, my board game design studio and publishing company.
