Hi. I'm Mike.

I make experimental games, interactive art, and software tools. Above all, I like to make things that color the way people view the world in interesting ways.

Until recently, I worked with the Playful Systems group at the MIT Media Lab, where my research focused on storytelling at the intersection of experiential theatre, interactive fiction, and audio-based augmented reality. In the past, I've worked on great products and teams such as Words With Friends, Timehop, Sensible Object, Etsy, and Pivotal Labs.

I believe the best way to get anything done is through intense collaboration with a few passionate and creative people. I love meeting new folks to jam with, so feel free to get in touch for any reason.

If you need a designer or developer for your software or playful object/experience, consider hiring me for contract work!
