Post GDC 2016


GDC this year was an incredibly heart warming and terrifying experience.  It was the first year that I was a speaker, and , of course, the content I choose to speak on was the most emotionally challenging.  Nevertheless, in 2016, at perhaps one of the most important tech conferences in the world, I discussed Native American identity, vulnerability, and video games.

Just let that sink in for a second.

Not only was i totally emotionally naked up there, but i was welcomed and supported but the industries movers and shakers. I can't thank my friends, mentors, teachers, and colleagues enough for this overwhelming and humbling support. I hope to do more of this kind of talk in the future, but for now I need to get back to work. 

If you would like to see the talk, you can here:
