About Me

I’m the Associate Editor at Vision Systems Design magazine, where I write about cool things like drones, AI, machine learning, and unmanned aerial systems. 

In another life I was a game journalist, with bylines in Kotaku, Polygon, Ars Technica, and was the gaming staff writer at The Daily Dot for a couple of years.

I also covered Destiny 2 on the Activision Games Blog before Bungie and Activision decided to part ways. :) 

Nowadays you might see me doing some freelance games writing. My Twitter feed is almost 100% progressive politics. I’m still deciding what this blog is going to be about.

    I just read your piece in The Escapist titled “Little League Trained me for Battlefield 3.” I enjoyed in throughly and give you an emphatic Huh-Ha! I tend to play with random people so I often experience a lot of very selfish play (don’t get me wrong, there are many good team players too). But during the frustrating games, I often find myself wondering if my fellow teammates ever played little league baseball and understand the joys of playing as a team even if you lose the game. It is good to know I am not alone in this desire!
