I am a creative director working across a broad range of industries including games, comics, mobile apps, and VR / AR.  My passion lies in discovering new techniques for combining narrative + interface to tell stories in engaging + meaningful ways.
A portfolio of my work from the past 10 years. Projects ranging from UX to Visual Design to Games and Mobile Apps.
I’m seen as a bit of a thought leader on interactive storytelling. You can find some of my best known presentations here.
