I'm Professor/lector for Interactive Narrative Design at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht, researching Interactive Digital Narrative in Video Games and other emerging digital formats. I'm also an artist and sometimes a car mechanic. My areas of interest center around new expressive forms using digital technology. This includes narrative in video games as well as interactive art pieces and installations.
I was previsously at the Department of Telecomunications/Entertainment Media Studies at the University of Georgia and at Georgia Tech's LCC department, where I've founded and led a research group and developed ASAPS, an open and expandable system for Interactive Digital Narrative. At the University of Georgia, I'm continuing this work.
I taught many classes connected to digital media, including interactive narrative, game programming, video production, and webdesign. I love to teach and I was awarded the "Class of 1969 Teaching Scholars" award at Georgia Tech.
