In 2015, I started The Mothyards, a Destiny (Bungie, 2014) fan-project. It began as a daily writing exercise but is now one of the most popular and well-regarded Destiny-related Tumblrs, with more than four thousand followers and over three hundred pieces of fiction, non-fiction, short comics, and poetry.
I also work as a contributing author for Planet Destiny. They needed an in-house Lore Master, and I have always enjoyed combining my academic interests with my love of gaming. I write a mix of in-depth discussions of the game lore, along with user-friendly tips and guides.
