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 hold a BA in Digital Art, and currently undertaking doctoral studies, looking at the unconventionalities of play in co-located multiplayer digital games that take place in public spaces. My research mainly takes place in the Exertion Games Lab where I explore and design games that revolve around technology, the body and play.
I co-direct and curate Hovergarden, a 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.
In my free time I find myself indulging in rapid game development (usually in the form of game jams), and playing physical games.
