I work as a transformative technology developer, game designer, entrepreneur, inventor, and artist, developing immersive experiences for new media platforms and creating 3D simulations since the early 1990s “goggles and gloves” days of virtual reality. My previous collaborations include industry-leading organizations such as Sony, Electronic Arts, Intermedia Outdoors, RedOctane, Warner Music, and Universal Music. I’ve created companies and built teams to create experiences across a broad variety of genres and mediums, including virtual reality, mobile games, social games, arcade games, exercise games, massively multiplayer games, and alternate reality games. I’ve been lucky to create games so loved that users were inspired to get tattoos of the game images and incorporate the games into their weddings.
I’m the founder and curator of the “Memetics: Hacking Belief Systems” community on Facebook, which has grown over two years to over 1,700 members. The community engages in systems thinking analysis of religion, extracts useful spiritual concepts, and explores new models for effective secular practice. I’m leading the assembly of that knowledge into a design and implementation called the Awakening, which merges mindfulness, self-development, and technological systems to build toward a modern enlightenment practice.
