    Noah is a thoughtful, socially responsible moderate who has broad experience as an educator, entrepreneur, and small business leader. He believes government transparency is a critical issue for 21st century voters, and has a unique willingness to be open with voters about political and personal matters. As governor, his top priority will be to improve Arizona education. He will also attract jobs, talent, and capital to Arizona.

  • Professor of Game Programming and ProductionApril 2012 to September 2014Tempe, Arizona
    First and foremost, I'm responsible for facilitating collaboration between the UAT Game Studio and the video game industry at large. Similarly, I'm responsible for fostering cooperation between students in UAT's 3 undergraduate and 1 graduate game development degrees: game art and animation, game programming, game design, and game production, respectively.

    I work with publishers and studios to secure licenses for UAT students to use intellectual property of both a creative and technical nature. I also work with major brands who are interested in developing a game or simulation to achieve their marketing and/or operational objectives.

    Additionally, I teach synthesis courses taken by students across all majors with the objective of producing complete games. I also teach courses specific to the game programming and game production majors.

    Beyond imparting technical knowledge, my role is to provide these amazing learners with skills and insights to manage their careers as AAA developers, or the fortitude and wisdom to navigate the industry via successful indie enterprises.

Favorite Quotes
  • "Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled." - Howard Stevenson

    "We have become a culture in which 'doing' something, anything, is celebrated. In essence, we're no longer human beings, but have become human doings" - Gregg Jacobs, The Ancestral Mind

    "In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists." - Eric Hoffer

    "A speckled ax is best." - Ben Franklin

    "The greatest reward of leading people of character is to learn its meaning from many teachers." - Jason Arriaga

    “No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

    I believe that love that is true and real creates a respite from death. All cowardice comes from not loving or not loving well, which is the same thing and when the man that is brave and true looks death squarely in the face, like some rhino hunters I know... it is because they love with sufficient passion to push death out of their minds, until it returns, as it does, to all men and then you must make really good love again." - Midnight in Paris
