Game Devs of Color Expo

2018 – present. New York City.

Game Devs of Color Expo is an inclusive games expo and conference creating a new normal in games by putting creators of color at the forefront, showing off their games, building conversations, and pushing games forward as an artform.

The games expo features over 25 studios and the conference features over 20 speakers.

I’m an organizer at GDoCExpo from 2018 – present.

We were awarded the Game Changer Award in 2019 at IndieCade.

Here’s a Twitter thread on inclusive event organization.
