Sara Cadwell, PR Manager Kaleb Havens, Writer Ashley Endemann, Graphic Design email@example.com About GameZombie TV In less than two years time, GZ has produced 250 original game videos for global webcast, garnering over 100 front page editor’s picks on major video sharing sites, front page articles in 10 online newspapers, and competitive visibility on the world’s top search engines. Official YouTube Partner status, various distribution contracts, and a rapidly expanding fan base have pushed GameZombie’s global view count over 7,000,000. After winning a 2008 Webby Honoree Award for Online Video, GZ is one of the few companies to repeat the feat in 2009. GZ's world exclusive video interview series--more than 100 to date--features some of the biggest names in the business, including Peter Molyneux of Fable 2, Ed Boon of MK vs DC, Todd Howard of Fallout 3, Ben Mattes of Prince of Persia, Eric Holmes of Prototype, and Cliff Bleszinski of Gears of War 2. And in the fall of 2008, GameZombie launched ButtonMashers, an original gaming news show shot in a $2.5 million HDTV studio—the first season garnered view counts in the millions. The highly anticipated second season, eight months in the making, drops August 4th, 2009.
About Darkest of Days GameZombie anxiously anticipates the upcoming Sept 8th release of 8monkey Labs and Phantom EFX’s newest First Person Shooter, the unprecedented-in-scope “Darkest of Days.” DoD delivers the ultimate experience in anachronistic mayhem as you travel through history to save kings, generals, and warlords from being plucked from time. From AK 47s slicing through Civil War cavalry to laser guns testing a Spartan’s resolve, “Darkest of Days” delivers a unique action experience in a story as harrowing as “Memento” with all the fun of “Back to the Future.”

Bio I grew up primarily in New England--between Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts--and spent some of my youth in Southern California and Europe. I completed high school in Chicago, and received highest honors degrees in History and Film Production from the University of Texas at Austin. Upon graduation, I lived in Costa Rica, Honduras, and Brazil, a journey that resulted in the novels, Fury & Redemption and Bad Blood Born. In the fall of 2006, I entered the Telecommunications Program at Indiana University at Bloomington. My thesis project was the four-time Webby Award winning original series, GameZombie TV.
In the Fall of 2009, I expanded GZ to the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater and co-founded the Media Arts & Game Development Program. Simultaneously, I completed a PhD in Digital Media from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, defending my dissertation on October 24, 2012. I moved to Silicon Valley in 2013 and became Founding Creative Director for an exciting new digital media & learning startup in Mountain View, CA called Galxyz. Worked hard to quarterback the building of a revolutionary next gen learning product/service--backed by Relay Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, and the Emerson Collective--currently taking the edtech world by storm. In the Fall of 2015, I began yet another adventure when I accepted a position as a professor of Digital Media at the American University in Dubai--where I'm thrilled to study, teach, and produce digital media and technology in one of the most innovative, entrepreneurial, and progressive cities of the 21st century.
