I'm an art critic, artist, designer and writer specializing in digital arts and play. I also edited a book of short stories called Ghosts in the Machine with game critic Brendan Keogh. You can check out a bunch of stuff I've done here.

Like it says in my bio, I write about the games no one writes about. My site, Sufficiently Human, is a criticism project that aims to provide a platform for weird, niche, oddball games that don't generally earn a mention on big gaming websites. I enjoy these works more than I enjoy most mainstream games, and I especially enjoy writing about them. I believe they provide a lot for me as a critic to chew on, and allow players to meditate on ideas and subject matter that most blockbuster games tend not to provoke. These works are often small, free or cheap, made by individuals or small teams as personal projects or artistic experiments. I believe there's value in curating these kinds of works that exist on the fringe, because they show us what the medium can do and what people can do with the tools without corporate direction. I hope you will enjoy reading about them. 

My goal is to post 3-4 pieces monthly, mostly reviews, but sometimes profiles, interviews, and critical essays. Fair warning: I'm currently working through a backlog that accrued due to certain interruptions in my life, but I have every intention of making up for lost time with these posts while I also work my way through a rather ambitious freelance project. 

I also occasionally make my own games and I like to illustrate in my spare time, especially grotesques. I would like to do these things for you as well, in exchange for money. 

For now, here's a drawing of mine that I felt was appropriate enough to post here, as it contains no depictions of melted flesh, goop, bodily fluids, nudity and/or elite public figures either deformed or in compromising physical positions.
