About GameZombie.tv

In five years time, GZ has produced over 500 original game videos for global webcast garnering over 100 front page editor’s picks on major video sharing sites, front page articles in 40 online newspapers, and competitive visibility on the world’s top search engines. Official partnerships with YouTube, Dailymotion, and Metacafe, and a loyal fan base, pushed GameZombie’s global view count over 10,000,000. GZ's world exclusive video interview series--more than 200 to date--features some of the biggest names in the business, including Peter Molyneux of Fable, Ed Boon of Mortal Kombat, Todd Howard of Fallout, and Cliff Bleszinski of Gears of War. In the fall of 2008, GameZombie launched ButtonMashers, an original gaming news show shot in a $2.5 million HDTV studio—the first season garnered view counts in the millions. The highly anticipated second season, eight months in the making, dropped August 4th, 2009, quickly becoming the most popular game video series in the world that summer. After winning a 2008 and 2009 Webby Honoree Award for Online Video, GameZombie won the Internet Industry's two highest honors in 2010, a Webby Award and a People's Voice Webby Award.

Bio
I grew up primarily in New England--between Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts--and spent some of my youth in Southern California and Europe. I completed high school in Chicago, and received highest honors degrees in History and Film Production from the University of Texas at Austin. Upon graduation, I lived in Costa Rica, Honduras, and Brazil, a journey that resulted in the novels, Fury & Redemption and Bad Blood Born. In the fall of 2006, I entered the Telecommunications Program at Indiana University at Bloomington. My thesis project was the four-time Webby Award winning original series, GameZombie TV.

In the Fall of 2009, I expanded GZ to the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater and co-founded the Media Arts & Game Development Program. Simultaneously, I completed a PhD in Digital Media from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, defending my dissertation on October 24, 2012. My professional objective is to create the future of multimedia--synthesizing new media production, social media optimization, and the new web
