I am a gamer, and part of the team. I am currently buried literally in Minecraft so I am an expert by the time we get to fall. Currently I am trying to find coal. I look forward to this experience and the interaction with you all.

In real life, I am an Adjunct Professor of Anthropology (FRCC/BCC and CCCOnline), and, Sociology, Criminal Justice and Introduction to Chicano Studies at FRCC/BCC.

I use games in my classes all the time, have cooperated and collaborated in several including Second Life (which I don't actually consider a game, you can't kill anything. . . boring!) I do MMORPGs and have been involved with game theory since 1974, and first computer game was "pong" that I saw at a University of Ohio student center in probably 1973-74. Thought it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen! Then, got up to PCs and 1984, the DOS text-version of "Hitchhikker's Guide to the Galaxy," where I was unsuccessful in getting that damn babel fish out of the machine for about six weeks.

I am excited about being part of this team. This summer I will be working in the discussion areas, and perhaps something else, in the fall, I am headed to Minecraft. I think WoW and StarTrekOnline is easier than Minecraft.

If I get to know you better I will let you know the derivation of my name "Grasshopper98" :)

Glad to be here but feel like the "Red Queen" running as fast as I can to stay in one place! Always can use an introduction.
