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.

Summer 2010 Update

Hello! I just wanted to mention here that I recently wrapped up three years at Tribeca Flashpoint Academy as Department Chair of Game & Interactive Media development. Tribeca Flashpoint is an amazing digital media arts college in downtown Chicago. It is a one-of-a-kind place and I was enormously fortunate to help launch the school and establish a competitive educational program in the area of game development and interactive media.

In moving on to my next adventures, I am working this summer for WMS Gaming, one of the leading developers and manufacturers of gaming machines in the world (they are known for hit slot machines found in gaming venues around the world. It is a publicly traded company, so I can't talk about anything related to what I'm doing there or what is going on, but you can learn more about it at the WMS Games website.

As a further note, I am eager to continue my own development efforts (now working on the e-reader Kindle platform!), working on some original music I will publish on iTunes later this year, and probably some writing and art to throw in the mix. I am also still pursuing speaking engagements and other activities in the interactive entertainment space, so those of you who are interested in working with me can best contact me through Linked In.
