I worked for five years as the Webmaster and Adjunct Instructor of web management, heuristic & graphic design at the Ivy Tech Community College in Bloomington, Indiana. During the 2008 -2009 school year, I led the development for a new game programming & animation curriculum within the College.

In the Spring of 2011, I completed a successful tenure as a Visiting Professor of Graphic Design at Indiana University and continue to develop game design prototypes for the School of Education as a freelance designer.
