About Me

| this is me in a nutshell

Chad

Hi there! I’m Chad, a game designer from Melbourne, Australia. I make experimental games, and craft unique and memorable experiences that make people smile : )

I co-direct and curate Hovergarden, Melbourne’s monthly gathering and celebration of local multiplayer indie games. I’m also an ambassador and game runner of Pop Up Playground, a group that is dedicated to playing and spreading physical, pervasive and street games.

I’m currently undertaking a PhD, looking at local multiplayer games and the New Arcade Movement. My research currently takes place in the Exertion Games Lab.

In my free time I find myself indulging in rapid game development (usually in the form of game jams), and playing physical games and card games.

Research

| this is my nerdy side

My current research interests revolve around local multiplayer games and the New Arcade Movement. I look particularly at how we play, where we play and with whom we play are changing.
