Hey everyone, if you’re going to be attending PAX West 2019 in Seattle this year, I’m going to be there and I’ll be presenting on a very cool panel. The title is “Geeks Like Us: Turning Your Passion Into a Career” and it will be Friday, August 30th at 3:30 pm in the Hippogriff Theater.
By far, the greatest power of geeks and gamers is their passion! However, such unapologetic enthusiasm is often misunderstood, shamed or rejected, especially in youth. Join Geeks Like Us as they discuss how to overcome such adversity, avoid common pitfalls, and develop a career in geek and gaming with professionals from Take This (gaming advocacy), Riot Games (gaming research), Hey Listen Games (educational curriculum design), Psychology of Zelda (author, media development), and Game to Grow (therapeutic table-top game development), and The Psychology of Games.
I’ll have a few autographed copies of my book to sell and will be happy to sign yours if you already have a copy. See you there!
