Home Works Research Bio    


I'm Professor 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.
