My research interests center on the social and psychological impact of video games. More specifically, I am interested in emotional experiences and gender/sex issues with these media. I completed my M.A. at Indiana University in 2013 with my thesis exploring player fright experiences during video game play.
I obtained a B.A. in Music from Armstrong Atlantic State University in 2008. While at AASU, I studied percussion performance, music composition, and worked for the student newspaper, The Inkwell. I am originally from a small town called Guyton just northwest of Savannah, Georgia. I enjoy playing video games, spending time in the beautiful outdoors around Bloomington, and travelling.
