User experience designer, full-stack developer
Engagement Game Lab

Working in partnership with Tufts University, the Engagement Game Lab developed a pilot project to more effectively train students working as volunteers in several communities throughout the Boston region. The game is a web-based multiplayer game that engages students with Tufts’ educational material, teaching players to work together and support one another as they help restore color to a fictional game world. Civic Seed was built in iterations of development and testing; in its spring 2014 iteration, I was contracted to add new features, squash bugs, and refresh the user interface, leading to a pilot test session with real students.
