More Information About Me

Simeon Peebler started out in the early 1980s programming his Commodore 64 and making his own games and music when he should have been doing "more appropriate" things. Flash forward to the present day; after years in game development and technology, he works as a game designer and programmer and has been working the last few years in teaching game design and game development at a leading digital arts college in Chicago Tribeca Flashpoint Academy In 2011, Simeon created Brain Bump, a trivia game for the Amazon Kindle. He also has been working on composing original music and songwriting (go to his songwriting site and hear his latest album).

Week One...COMPLETE!

The first week was truly an amazing experience. A dream come true.

Last Monday, against the odds some might say, we opened the doors on time.

The team came together.

This past week all the students at Flashpoint Academy have been deeply involved in their first Flashpoint experience. Here's what it boils down to: we are awakening their senses. We are awakening their ability to communicate and articulate these important details about what they observe around them. We are also taking them back to the fundamental beginnings of human storytelling. And finally, we are giving them a first-class overview of a professional media production. This intense cross-department experience prepares them for launching into the next sequence in the program at the end of Week Two.

I have been working in multiple classes co-teaching with John Murray and Bernie Mack. They are outstanding; it has been thrilling working with them as we go through the material so essential to the core of our school's mission.

See you in class!
