Thanks for stopping by. My name is Tim Koppang.

I’m currently teaching at Loyola University in beautiful Chicago while completing a PhD in “Modern Literature and Culture.” You can find out more about my professional life by taking a look at my (in need of updates) teaching portfolio. Teaching is the challenge that keeps me going, and I’ve happily taught college students at all levels in both composition and literature.

Or perhaps you’re more interested in my game design efforts? To that end, I’ve been running a small publishing business, TCK Roleplaying, since 2006. My most celebrated game is the two-player RPG, Mars Colony, about personal failure and government.

If you’d like to get in touch, you can reach me on Twitter (@tckoppang) or by email (
