He is the designer and creator of Truth Invaders, an on-line game exposing untrue statements made by politicians.
Graduating from Wesleyan University a BA and MA in biochemistry, he left the sciences to pursue a MFA in screenwriting at USC. There his life-long interest in games led him to get involved with the Interactive Media program and with the Electronic Arts funded Game Innovation Lab.
He has since written and designed multiple “serious” and educational games, ranging from the on-line political call-to-action puzzle The Redistricting Game to the NSF funded first-person-shooter/high-school-immunology-textbook Immune Attack. He has also designed and written training games for groups ranging from intelligence analysts at the National Counter-Terrorism Center to emergency pediatric specialists at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
