Hi, I’m Molly!

Hello and welcome! I’m glad you’re here.

I am currently an MA student in Game Design at American University in Washington, D.C., with an expected graduation date of May 2023.

When it comes to game design, my primary interests are narrative and systems design. I love creating and experiencing thoughtful, complex stories with engaging, well-crafted characters. My background in news production has also left me with a strong inclination toward producing and project management.

In terms of research, I am passionate about analyzing the social impact of digital games, particularly at the intersection of games and mental health.

Before landing at AU, I graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Communication, specializing in Electronic & Print Journalism. After graduating, I spent a couple of years producing early-morning TV news before leaving to explore new industries.

These days, I spend my time outside of class raising my daughter, playing games, reading, exploring the D.C. metro area, working on personal projects, and spending time with my husband, family, friends, hedgehog, and two cats.
