User Experience and Games Designer, Coder, Facilitator

About

Thank you for your curiosity to look into what I do. I'm Rob Stenzinger and I care a lot about user experience, game design, and storytelling.
I believe that when we care about and act in the interest of the experience of others many awesome things happen. When we keep on caring about the experience of others we can create a learning machine, a progression of questions, research, and insights for ourselves and others who serve the users of the systems we make.
When we do all that, we design systemically. That's how I can help.
