So I’m part of the IGDA’s Scholarships Committee where we oversee the running of the various Scholar Programs at conferences like E3, GDC, etc. So in the group for the current GDC 2013 scholars I started sharing tips on being prepared for GDC and conferences in general. Thanks to one of the scholars, the […]
I know it’s been quiet around here recently – the last part of 2012 was filled with hospital visits and a major surgery. Rather than update this space, I was focusing on my health and stealthily getting things done when feeling well. I want you, the members, to know that I’m still pushing […]
A couple weeks ago I had the honor of speaking at IGDA Chicago’s how-to session entitled “You’ve Graduated: Now What?”. The premise of the evening was to have a series of experts speak to recent graduates looking for work with advice on job hunting, networking, interviewing, etc.

I’m thrilled to be on the slate! Stay tuned to sheriforigda.org for more updates on my platform and Q&A sessions with voters.
Additionally, with four candidates running for two seats, I’d like to take this opportunity to recommend using one of your votes for the esteemed Kate Edwards. She’s an […]
One of the things that I believe has been missing from this organization, possibly since it’s inception, is a formal volunteer management program. It is something that while crucial for a non-profit organization like ours, it also can easily be forgotten or not created because a) you’re so busy just making sure you’ve […]
Today I sent in my formal nomination to become a Board of Directors candidate for the IGDA. Sure it was the last day to turn it in, but GGJ was also this weekend and as Executive Director Gordon Bellamy used to say:

I would like […]
