Greg’s dissertation analyzes digital adaptations of tabletop games, using media ecology to approach this pandemic-related adaptation in media practices of tabletop gaming hobbyists. He teaches and researches broadly within media and communication studies, with a particular interest on materialized media and non-digital games. At HU, he teaches in the Interactive Media program and its Purposeful Games concentration. Greg also designs board, role-playing, and real-world games for publication, research, and for fun.
When he is not researching, designing, or playing games, Greg enjoys roasting, brewing, and tasting coffee (ask him for local cafe recommendations!). He also gets outdoors to hike, bike, and swim with his family and dog as often as he can.
