User Researcher
Greater Seattle Area
I have a PhD in social-health psychology! Before coming to the games world, I conducted research on the social and psychological factors that impact the health of LGBTQ people and people of color. Since entering the gaming industry in 2015, I've worked in user research on games in the Halo and Minecraft franchises; I've also investigated people's experiences of social and multiplayer gaming as part of Xbox's Gaming for Everyone program. I'm also a member of Team Xbox LGBTQ!
