Since 2020, our team United Discord has competed in the ER Champ Escape Room World Championships, including a top 3 finish in 2021 and a top 5 finish in 2022. Although we reside across the United States, we've been able to communicate beautifully through a variety of online tools, honing our skills across dozens of remote escape room experiences. We'll make it to the top of that podium before long!
Red Bull Mind Gamers Escape Room World Championshps
In 2019, I was recruited onto Team Slackers United, and we went on to qualify as the wildcard for Red Bull Mind Gamers' Escape Room World Championship. We finished 10th among 2 dozen countries (and if you find yourself in London, I also built a game for the other countries' teams to play inside the Ace Hotel while we were there ... don't tell the hotel ...).
Red Bull Mind Gamers Quantum Challenge
In 2018, I won Red Bull Mind Gamers' Quantum Challenge, culminating in a 2-week internship at the Vienna Center for Quantum Research, where I was able to test Bell's inequality experiment. I have entangled particles—it was so unreal that I tattooed a representation of spontaneous parametric down conversion (it's worth googling!) on my forearm.
In 2016, I placed 5th internationally in Dyson's Rethinkers challenge—a series of unique challenges designed to "find the world's brightest minds."
You made is this far‽ If you wanna hear more, I'd be happy to share!
