Tell us about your community-building activities in 2019 (<500 characters)

Across Elm City Games, New Haven Game Makers Guild, Fantasticon, board positions with Site Projects and GameDevCT, and community service work, I've connected hundreds of people with each other, both professionally and personally. I also co-own and manage a suite of creative company offices in downtown New Haven.

 

What community-building goals did you accomplish or milestones did you hit in 2019? (<500 characters)

Elm City Games moved to a larger location and we're now serving a few hundred members a month. New Haven Game Makers Guild continues to grow its membership and see partnerships form between members resulting in dozens of games coming to market in the last year. Fantasticon remains one of the premier game designer conferences in the North East. Site Projects and GameDevCT are making moves across the board to better the community. I've also donated thousands of dollars worth of items and services for charity auctions, hosted non-profit group events, and mentored four up and coming game designers.
