A gateway to my work

My current blogging and freelance journalism work:

I am the Editor-in-Chief at GameLuster, a small video game website. We have news, features, and reviews. Check us out (and check out my stories). I am also a writer at TechRaptor, and here is my writer’s page there.

I write entries on missions from a computer game series called Thief¬†at the Thief Diaries. Even if you’re not interested in games, you may enjoy a read of it.

My personal blog is at The Stammering Stickman. In 2018, my posting has gone down due to my increased work elsewhere, but I have resurrected the blog for posting non-gaming thoughts and writings. These include posts on trips I have been on and other life experiences.

My big school projects:

In all the classes I took in school I completed many projects. The two below are the biggest – those that I completed for each degree, my Master’s and my Bachelor’s. Both have to do with my passion – games – but they may be read and enjoyed by anyone.

Note that for my Master’s I majored in Emerging Media and Communication at the University of Texas at Dallas and for my Bachelor’s I majored in History at the University of Dallas.

My graduate school Advanced Project:

For my Master’s I completed a blog project in which I analyzed official and fan-made missions for the first three Thief games. If you are unfamiliar with games, know that these titles are some of the best at using the medium’s interactivity to convey narrative. This is one of the major points of my project linked to below:

My undergraduate Senior Thesis:

This is the thesis I wrote for my History major, The Importance of the Home Computer and PC for Gaming:

My current day job:

I am currently employed as a Lead in the Facilities department at the University of Dallas (UD). UD is also where I earned my Bachelor’s. You may learn about the school at its website.
