HI I'M RUDI
Producer | Designer | Games User Researcher
I hold an M.F.A. in game design from the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts where I designed and produced games while also working in UX research.
I used to be an archaeologist and have excavated all over the world. I remain deeply interested in people and our relationships to things and each other.
I like learning new things, good beer, power metal, biking around Los Angeles, too many books to list, and games of all types.

Mac Goes Back is a point and click adventure game for PC currently in development. It is my MFA thesis project, sponsored by the Sloan Foundation. Join Mac on a real archaeological excavation at Tikal where she and the team uncover political intrigue in the Classic Maya period.
EARLY & OFTEN
Early and Often was born from a Broward County, FL voting booth for a game festival setting. Vote at the booth, change the game (and get an "I voted" sticker!). Now, it is being adapted into a social mobile game.

This Black Mirror-esque narrative mobile experience was an experiment in IBM's Watson chat technology. If you lost your beloved partner and could bring them back in digital form, would you?
This walking simulator imagines the early Neolithic site of Gobekli Tepe as a phenomenological experience.
A social, cooperative tabletop game that examines society, values liberty, and wants everyone to achieve self-actualization even if it means we must each give up pieces of our own privilege.
Assume the role of a real archaeologist -- manage an excavation and pursue career research to become the most respected academic around.
