Bio

I’m on the business development team of the joyously purple and game-filled live video broadcaster, Twitch. I use my legal and business training to identify, assess, negotiate, and execute partnership opportunities with strategic partners, especially major game publishers and developers, as well as other media and entertainment enterprises. I also support various business
units within Twitch with their deal negotiation and execution needs. I’ve previously developed experience in a variety of spheres, including legal practice (in the context of a large corporate-commercial law firm, as well as an arts-oriented non-profit), mobile
and core games, charitable organizations, government, and academia. Most recently before joining Twitch, I served as Counsel for Business and Legal Affairs at Humble Bundle, a mature start-up game distribution and promotion platform. My Humble role covered full-service business development, developer/publisher relations, in-house counsel practice (with an emphasis on licensing and commercial contracts, as well as charitable regulations), contract administration, marketing strategy, and charitable relations and compliance. I try to bring a highly constructive, positive, and upbeat attitude to life and work— so don’t be shy about saying hello if you have something to share with me. I have a wide variety of interests —although my strongest passions are political philosophy, theatre, karaoke, basketball, squash, and (surprise) games and sports of all kinds.
