He works with various media including computer software and hardware, game design, live performance, digital video, and kinetic
sculpture. His game projects include Sheik Attack, Best Flamewar Ever, Vietnam Romance, Wizard Takes All, Darkgame, Waco Resurrection, and Tekken Torture Tournament. He is a strong advocate for independent game development, and the inherent potential of games as a medium for artistic expression and cultural impact.
