I am the Professor of Creative & Entertainment Games at NHTV University in The Netherlands, working as part of the Academy of Digital Entertainment. It’s a very highly rated course, taught entirely in English, and if you’re interested in learning more about games development then I highly recommend it: http://made.nhtv.nl/
I am also a games & narrative designer with fifteen years of experience of making both indie and AAA games, and writing for games, television, webcomics, and print. Outside of university I am collaborating with SassyBot Studio to create the PINE (Playable Interactive Narrative Experience) game ‘Fragments of Him’. I also write fiction and non-fiction, and occasionally exhibit paintings. I have also been a circus performer, taught classes on martial arts, and have a PhD in cyberpunk. I enjoy encouraging others to expand games into wider fields of creativity, diversity, and narrative variety than they commonly occupy, and I often speak internationally on this subject.
