About

Hey, I’m whizzer. I write stories and sometimes I program and design things. You can check out the stories I’ve written here – I’m currently working on a series of shorts about a world I’ve created, called Tradia. It’s sort-of sci-fi and sort-of political satire. Each country in Tradia has a unique and very different structure and way of life, which makes for some interesting interactions.

In addition to writing short stories, I’ve also created two alternate reality games, Mystery of the Emblem and In Reality. ARGs are narratives told as if they were actually happening, and usually involve people solving puzzles to help characters who run blogs. I’m working on another ARG, which I reckon is going to be much better than the other two, but I can’t reveal anything about it yet. Sorry.

As for less writingy things, I also host an annual cheesy song contest called Scratchovision. It’s silly and fun and it’s interesting to see people try to intentionally make something bad.

Game-wise, I recently helped create a game called Bull in a Gun Fight for the xkcd game jam. It was a collaboration between me and my good friends Darien, Matthew, and Ethan, and it involves using random objects to have crazy battles. I’m also working on a longer-term game project, but that might take a long time.
