I research narrative and learning in immersive environments. I’m particularly interested in the forms of learning and skills that young adults can learn from playful mobile media design activities. I am currently the Assistant Dean of Curriculum and Instruction at the Jack Welch Management Institute at Strayer University, where I manage a 100% online curriculum. I am currently working as a practitioner to better understand education realities in digital environments. I remain active in integrating research and practice to understand how narrative and gameplay can impact learning environments in the 21st Century.
