People have asked me to share what I know. I take this as a good sign.
What’s interesting is the range of audiences I’ve been invited to address. I’ve spoken to academics and students at various universities, storytellers at TEDx, media types at The Media Festival and Power to the Pixel, games industry pros at Develop and the Edinburgh Interactive Festival, and writers at the Immersive Writing Lab and on courses for the Arvon Foundation for a week at a time (twice). I’ve also mentored transmedia teams in Australia, offered survival tips at the London Screenwriters’ Festival and talked about interactive drama at StoryWorld in Hollywood. In 2013, I’ll be teaching a course in Singapore.
Then there was the time I defended zombie rights at an event about the apocalypse, but that was somewhat unusual.
Almost everything I do involves collaboration, so it makes sense that I enjoy sharing ideas and helping creative people. That also means I’m much happier talking with people than at them, so get in touch if you’d like to chat.
