Volunteering

Microsoft Education Guest Speaker Program

If you work in education, you can create a free account on the Microsoft Education website and connect with guest speakers from around the world. These guest speakers can use Skype to speak with your students and share their expertise and experience on a variety of different disciplines and industries. I’ve been volunteering for this program since Fall 2014, and the goals of my sessions are usually to get kids interested in programming, game development, and/or the tech industry, while also offering career/school advice for older students.

Podcast Appearances

Spawn On Me #75: Livio De La Diamond

August 25, 2015: I was interviewed for the Spawn On Me podcast’s 75th episode (the show’s “diamond” anniversary). This episode was recorded a few days after I published my Mini-Research Paper on GamerGate, which quickly became my most popular piece of writing to date. Most of Spawn On Me‘s shows are interviews with really cool people in and around the games industry, and they also cover news and topics relevant to gamers from minority backgrounds.

Digital Drift #38: GamerGate Vol. 1

October 28, 2014: I appeared on a special episode of the Digital Drift podcast which featured a variety of audio-essays and reflections about GamerGate from the podcast’s fan community. Digital Drift is mainly known for its thoughtful analyses and critiques of movies, television series, and other media. The show tends to rebrand itself every few years, whenever the format, structure, and hosts of the show change. It began as the Digital Cowboys podcast, then it became Digital Gonzo, then Digital Drift, and now it’s known as the School of Movies podcast.
