What are some of your hobbies or interests?
I like to dabble in pretty much anything creative that catches my eye. I’ve been sewing and doing other crafts for as long as I can remember; I learned how to spin yarn on a drop spindle when I was two years old. I also like to write fiction, especially fantasy novels, which is where my interest in researching National Novel Writing Month comes from. I’ve been participating (and winning!) every year since 2005, but I’m not sure if it’s for everyone. I also love analyzing video games, but I tend to play older games.
If any students want to come talk about video game analysis techniques or theory during office hours, I’d love to have that conversation and even help them with a project!
But, mostly, I just love cats.
