I am currently a lecturer in game design at Uppsala University Department of Game Design. I have lectured and taught at the university level and given professional and equalities training since 2002. In the UK I have done so at institutions like The London School of Economics (LSE), South Bank University, University College London, The British Film Institute, University of Kent, University of West England, LGBT mental health organization PACE amongst many others. After moving to Sweden, I have done similarly at institutions like ABF, Karolinska Institut, Kulturhuset, Arbetsförmedlingen, Stockholm University amongst others. In the early 2000s I also designed and maintained online teaching materials during my time at the LSE as well as designed websites for other academic initiatives.
I am currently (since July 2020 to present) employed as a game designer and consultant at the Department of Game Design at Uppsala University, Sweden. With colleagues at The Games & Society Lab and the Transformative Play Initiative there, I am currently working on several games.
I have been an activist for LGBTQ and disabilities rights since 2000 when I first worked for Stonewall Lobby group (2000 – 2001, and again 2002) and then Attitude is Everything (2003 – 2007), both in the UK. Since then I have worked with the likes of ILGA World, RFSL, RFSU, TGEU, ULOBA, ANSO, SFQ, Queer Beograd, Le Madame Poland, amongst many others. In my capacity as an activist, I have presented and spoken on the topics of LGBTQ issues in front of parliamentarians, social service providers, media, and fellow activists in any number of arenas and occasions over the last 20 years.
