Game Designer / Professor / Optimist


The Prototyping, Education and Technology Lab (PETLab) is dedicated to the design and use of games as a form of public interest and engagement. To do this, we emphasize iterative design methodologies and the processes of collaborative design. Through our work, we connect with scholars and designers in the field of digital media, practitioners working in the spheres of education and social issues, and people of all ages at play.

Support for PETLab has come from the AMD Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Digital Media and Learning initiative and other generous funders.

We have worked with a wide range of partners such as MTV, Microsoft, Boys and Girls Clubs, the National Academy of Public Administration, Area/Code, the AMD Foundation, the Red Cross, the New York Public Library and the Institute of Contemporary at the University of Philadelphia.
