Personal profile

Summary

I currently co-ordinate and teach on a variety of Games Technology courses in Game Design, Programming and 3D Modelling. As a researcher, I am particularly interested in Game Design as a process, and am currently looking at how Game Design can be a cathartic process for creating personal games. In addition, I am particularly interested in pervasive games (games that are played in real life) and how those games can enable and encourage meaningful personal experiences.
