Hi, I’m Ken and I’m a game designer and educator.


I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with two Bachelors of Science, the first in Management and the second in Electronic Media, Arts, and Communications. After that, I pursued a Master’s of Science in Human Computer Interaction.


I worked in the game industry for eight years as a Game Designer and Lead Designer before coming to the University of Connecticut. My responsibilities included directing game projects from start to finish, programming unique scenarios using game development tools, and working with publishers such as SEGA, Electronic Arts, and Activision. I worked with Blockbuster franchises such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Madagascar, Shrek, and over a dozen others. My work in the video game industry has received Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Award for best video game, Indie Game of the Year, and Innovation Awards from industry publications.


I work with students on creating engaging gameplay experiences and pushing the boundaries of play.


I am always on the lookout for good projects and teams to work with. Email me at: ken@gamedevprofessor.com
