Biography

Researching game and play design, I try to put the fun in functional. With a background in computer science, psychology and industrial design, I construct, deconstruct and scrutinize the elements of a game's design to find best practices in games and play for entertainment, learning, vitality and empathy. From playful interaction to immersive VR experiences, I try to discover the elements that engage us to construct imaginary magic circles, to have cathartic mediated presence experiences in fantasy evironments, and stimulate us to see the world in a newfound light.
