Bellyfeel helps clients create compelling interactive story experiences that inspire, educate, and entertain audiences on all platforms and networks. (Growing their audience and increasing their ROI.)
Me? I was born a Shropshire Lad in 1968 and grew up obsessing about music and films. My first love aged 7 years old was a tape recorder and I used it to document and replay the best bits of my world.
Between 1995 and 2008 I logged approximately 13,000 hours creating interactive story games, networked story prototypes and innovative online experiences. I got my interactive work shown internationally, filled a book of useful contacts and developed some extraordinary techniques for audience engagement.
Since 2008 most of my waking moments have been taken up developing, producing and consulting to create compelling interactive stories and unforgettable user experiences at Bellyfeel.
In 2015 I published “Set the Storyworld to Random”, a book about how to how to connect with modern transmedia audiences.
I also deliver talks and training around the world at Media Festivals and online.
