Games User Researcher
I’m a Games User Researcher for Electronic Arts, in Vancouver, Canada, eh?
In my years here, I’ve led research on Dragon Age: Inquisition, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, FIFA, NHL, UFC, Battlefield: Hardline multiplayer, and a variety of other projects. My experience is primarily in qualitative research, with light descriptive stats, including both group research (up to 24 participants at once), small groups, and 1-on-1 sessions. I’m active in our SIG, helping plan/run the Summit for a few years.
With the bizarre mix of AAA titles I’ve worked on, there are not too many problems I haven’t found, fixed, or caused, so mentees can benefit from my eclectic knowledge base. I am happy to expound, at length, on pretty much anything – research methods, dealing with game teams, test planning, lab setup/maintenance, and whatever else you care to throw my way. If I can’t help, I almost certainly know some smarter people that can.
Also, I’m only marginally more serious than Jordan, and thus I hereby declare: You’ve Been Warned.
