PeteI am a PhD student at the University of Utah, where I study videogames.  I also work for ASPIRE, the outreach program for the Utah High Energy Astrophysics Institute, as a programmer and game developer.  I do a fair amount of teaching here and there, as well as the occasional bout of web design.  In addition to videogames, I have a keen interest in board games, old Space Legos, and fine cheeses.  I also play the Tuba.

I strongly believe that academics should be involved in the fields they study, hence my deep interest not only in videogames, but also in videogame development.  In addition to creating a number of small solo projects over the years, I have worked as a member of a team on larger projects, including a Global Game Jam entry, an ill-fated Xbox Live game, and an award winning Machinima production.

Some of my more historically-oriented writing can be found at Play the Past.
