My name is Michael Iantorno and I am a student, audio producer, and game designer.
I am currently a master’s candidate in Concordia University’s Media Studies (MA) program. My areas of interest include interactive documentary, game hacking and fan game culture, advocacy journalism, and radio production.
I’ve spent the past ten years working in the Toronto media industry, including a five year stint as an audio producer at Accessible Media Inc. My work has included live, serialized, and documentary programming, with a focus on disability advocacy and social justice issues. My projects have been recognized by the IAAIS, RTDNA, NCRA, and New York Festivals.
In my spare time, I tinker away at interactive media projects ranging from Super Nintendo hacks to roleplaying games. My work has received thousands of downloads and has been featured in festivals, books, and blogs. I am an advocate for open game licenses, Creative Commons resources, and game hacking as fair use/dealing.
I am a cat-lover, dungeon master, vegan, cartoon aficionado, retronaut, 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 really worked up about Canadian politics.
