Hello. I’m Jess. Welcome to my blog – my repository of media musings, graduate school endeavors, and insights on video games and gamer culture.

Currently, I’m a Ph.D. Candidate at Indiana University in the The Media School. I am interested in understanding game development in the context of a globalized industry, the design and depiction of game characters, and how video games affect self-perception and identity using social-psychological theories.
