Hi, I’m Cherisse Datu.

I am a Game Designer and Video Producer. 

I received my Masters in Game Design from American University, and I was a JoLT (Journalism and Leadership Transformation) Fellow studying the intersection of Game Design  and Journalism with a grant from the  Knight Foundation.

I've worked for ESPN's The Undefeated, Al Jazeera, Extra Credits, and Fusion. I recently spoke at SXSW 2017 on "Engineered Collisions Between Games and News."

I’m currently based in Washington, D.C.
