Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
I'm all about using games to teach and to help - I'm currently (attempting to) embark on a (few) research project(s) to see how I could possibly use games as means to change the society's perspective on those who are challenged.
Games you’ve worked on ...
The biggest game I've worked on so far would be Queensland State Library's Zombie Climate Apocalypse in 2011 and 2012. "Climate Apocalypse" because we were suppose to impart knowledge pertaining to climate change to the players. "Zombies" because...well, that's what you get when you mess Earth up, right? I also a short "game" for my graduation showcase...sadly, it had no chance against theiving scoundrels (a key to the next stage of the game was stolen within the first 30 mins of the doors opening). I also designed a rather complicated little thing regarding geneology in 2011 during my stint as a student.
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
I learn things quickly - and have a habit of mixing everything I know together to create unusual solutions to problems. I'm also pretty good at crafting - if something needs to be made, I'm the guy (or gal. or alien, vampire, zombie...whatever the situation calls for, really)
