I enjoy puzzle hunts, and I've written puzzles for various hunts over the years. I currently write for the Galactic Puzzle Hunt, an annual online puzzle hunt that I help run and organize. I have a fondness for unusual, interactive puzzles that test the solver on entirely new skills.
In addition to writing, I've developed some tools to assist in solving some standard puzzle types. I'm also working on a long essay about puzzle design called On Puzzles. It focuses on construction of puzzles and puzzle hunts, why people solve them, and what it means for a puzzle to be "fun".
