Looking for a panel host or keynote speaker for your convention that knows the ins and outs of play, education, intersectionality, and gaming? Do you want someone to be a guest speaker in your classroom about larp, so you don’t have to? Perhaps you’d like me to discuss how emancipatory bleed can work for you? Or do you need a play expert with the ability to deconstruct and look at the player experience?
Look no further. My keynotes are as funny as they are intelligent, and will provide an engaging and enlightening talk for your conference, convention, classroom, or institution. I have been a speaker or a panel moderator at major game conventions around the globe including GenCon, Breakout, Big Bad Con, Living Games, and Knutpunkt. You can watch some of my panels, and keynotes here. In addition I have spoken at museums, schools, and academic conferences as well.
Want a more hands on approach? Do you want to know the links between narratives and marginalized identities? Would you like to learn more about autoethnography and games in a more fun and engaging way? Perhaps you’d like to figure out how to decolonize your design thinking?
My passion is preparing informative and fun workshops, and giving engaging talks on theater, games, activism and play. I have given workshops for children, adolescents and adults. For me, nothing is as fun as watching people think about old ideas in new ways.
Currently I offer workshops on my tools for emancipatory bleed and liberatory steering, as well as running small tailored picked larps for companies and non-profit organizations.
