Writing

I have worked aspects of narrative design and world-building into many projects, not least my game jam- and ‘indie’ releases. I tend towards writing science fiction and urban fantasy, however I’m also a practised writer of instructional texts, essays and other non-fiction works – often outside of games, but also in complement to some of my spoken lectures.

For playable samples, see my ludography.
