Andrew Kemp-Wilcox is an assistant professor of practice focused on game studies in the School of Information. Prior to completing his PhD in Communications at Georgia State University, Andrew was a working professional in the video game industry with a strong background in mobile and social games. In his time in the industry, Andrew worked as a copywriter, content writer, game designer, narrative designer and producer, shipping 10+ titles in just under ten years. Andrew brought that experience with him into academic studies, specializing on video game narrative and storytelling with a special emphasis on player phenomenology—the lived, embodied experience of co-creating a narrative with the game. In the classroom Andrew blends his working knowledge of industry practices with the academic theory and research required to put those practices into their larger context, helping students to understand the industry they will one day join.
