Assistant Professor of Book & Media Studies at the University of St. Michael's College, University of Toronto

I am an interdisciplinary scholar of media and culture, specializing in digital media, games, and film. My current research project, Indie Interfaces, is supported by a SSHRC Insight Development Grant and explores the production, distribution, and reception of independent or “indie” digital games. I am President of the Canadian Game Studies Association and a co-founder of Toronto Outdoor Picture Show. Previously, I was a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at Concordia University’s Technoculture, Art and Games Research Centre, and I completed my Ph.D. in Communication & Culture at York University. 🎯
