id Software (Bethesda)
I am a user researcher at Bethesda Softworks operating out of the id Software office in Texas. Prior to my current job, I worked as a UX Lab Analyst at Epic Games. When it comes to user research, my goal is to create a two-way road between stakeholders and users, leveraging psychological theories and research methodologies to maintain that road. At the time of writing this short biography (late 2020), I would barely consider myself a mid-level researcher, so I advertise my mentorship with the caveat that my experience and resulting advice are more geared toward breaking in and early career researchers. You're welcome to ask me about research methods, games I've worked on (within NDA limitations!), transitioning from academia to commercial life, and games in general!

Games user research methods
PC and mobile user testing
