Personal + Professional Interests Outside of EN: “I’ve been an avid video gamer and tech nerd/early adopter since I was a kid. During the pandemic, online gaming actually helped to preserve and strengthen personal relationships with many of my lifelong friends. As a storyteller, I love seeing how new games and platforms transform the experience of human connection.
I’m also a huge pro and college football fan (my two alma maters are USC and UVA) and I was spoiled by the Reggie Bush years and the Steelers 6 Super Bowls. I bleed Dodger blue. Arsenal forever.
I also won a cruise on Jeopardy! It made me realize how much I needed to brush up on my Shakespeare and poetry quotes.”
