Erik Martin: Revisiting “How World of Warcraft Saved Me and My Education”
Erik Martin revisits a story he told in 2013 at TedX, Redmond WA, titled “How World of Warcraft Saved Me and My Education.” Erik has since held posts at the US Department of Education, the Whitehouse Office of Science and Technology (OST) and is now Senior Manager for Education Programs at game engine, Unity. He credits much of his success to experiences he had working his way up to leading an 800 member guild in the popular massively multiplayer online roleplaying game, World of Warcraft. This environment became key to his recovery from depression and anorexia nervosa as a young teenager.
