HI I'M RUDI

Producer | Designer | Games User Researcher

 

ABOUT ME

I design and produce games with a keen interest in UX research. ​I'm currently pursuing my M.F.A. in Interactive Media & Game Design at the School of Cinematic Arts at USC. 

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.

Director | Producer

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

Co-Designer

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.

DISCARNATE

Co-Designer | Producer

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?
