I do some writing, teaching, board game design, and a bit of light yard work. 

Thanks for stopping by,

News from the testing table

Two of our games were signed by the publisher R&R Games!

Shapely (left) and Picture Postcards (right) will soon be coming to a tabletop near you. I'm not sure exactly when they'll hit the streets, but Arun and I are both very excited.

Selected work

Selected articles of mine from the Valley News. I also write for Daybreak and Dartmouth's Office of Communications.

Apparently, this is what I look like when teaching at Colby-Sawyer College.

Here's an overview of Shapely, a game I'm working on with a friend. Shapely won the Board Game Workshop's Design Contest and was selected for PAX Unplugged's Rising Showcase!

Here's a lecture I gave about modern board games and some design principles. 


Review of Penny Press, a board game I co-designed.

I write a little fiction when I have the time. GRIMM DIAGNOSIS is my latest project.
