Boxes get a bad rap in creative circles.


But boxes are amazing things.




The challenge of filling a box with a compelling experience brings out the lightning in me.

Give me a story, and I’ll put it in a box. That box could be a game, an interactive experience, or an evocative image. 
Magic is being able to capture a feeling, a personal narrative, and put it into a box of a specific dimension.

I’ve designed award-winning, best-selling games, industry-leading graphics, and told stories through mediums as varied as costumes, video, and soap. My most popular seminars are on the topics of Crafting Narrative Webs for Interactive Mystery Design, The Neuropsychology of Frustration, and Designing Games for Dogs.

Tell me what you want to do with a box.
