My name is Michael Iantorno and I am a student, writer, radio producer, and game designer.
I am currently a master’s candidate in Concordia University’s Media Studies (MA) program, where my research focuses on video game hacking, fan cultures, media policy, and digital scholarship.
Prior to arriving at Concordia, I spent ten years working in the Canadian media industry. This included a five year stint as a radio producer at Accessible Media Inc where my work focused on advocacy and social justice issues. My sound projects have been recognized by the RTDNA, NCRA, IAAIS, and New York Festivals, and I currently serve as a jury member for the NYF Radio Awards.
In my spare time, I pursue video game hacking, short feature writing, and tabletop game design. My projects have received thousands of downloads and have been featured in books, courses, magazines, contests, blogs, and more.
I am a cat-lover, dungeon master, vegan, cartoon aficionado, and generally okay dude. Feel free to get in touch if you want to chat me up about my work, interview me for a podcast, or berate me for not making my games quickly enough. You can also follow me on Twitter, where I generally post cat pictures and get worked up about politics.
