Convention Schedule

I’ll be updating this page regularly with my schedule of upcoming events as they are planned.



I’ll be in San Francisco from February 27-March 3 to attend the Game Developer’s Conference and Expo at Moscone Center. My major focus will be the professional development tracks, as I’m quite interested in the Summits, Bootcamps and Sessions offered, but I’ll also be on the floor to enjoy the Expo and the Independent Games Festival on Thursday and Friday.

My updates, photos and thoughts on the conference will be posted to this website and to my Twitter account, @Erinys.


My schedule for Norwescon 40 is listed below. Needless to say, this will be a busy weekend for me! I hope that local friends and those traveling to the con will have time to swing by my panels and say hello.
