Funded by a grant from Cincinnati philanthropic lab People's Liberty, CXD was a transmedia narrative that spanned across Downtown Cincinnati and surrounding neighborhoods. Working with local institutions including the Cincinnati Art Museum, Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati Public Library and more, CXD offered participants of all ages an entirely free experience designed to get people moving across their city, taking them to bastions of local culture and allowing them to interact with their surroundings in ways they may not have imagined possible.


Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology was looking for a way to further connect with (and encourage relationships among) their incoming freshmen class. But with a lingering quarantine making campus visits nigh impossible, they needed a new digital solution. I developed a narrative-driven puzzle hunt for their students utilizing the school's existing assets (from their online radio station to their student newspaper to on-campus webcams) and created a hub for participants on their Discord to give the students a way to connect with the university—as well as each other—without ever having to leave their homes.
