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).

Tribeca Flashpoint Academy -- Early Decision

My nephew was recently given "Early Decision" acceptance to Duke. Obviously I was thrilled, as he is a talented and bright guy, with a world full of potential. He's still not sure exactly what he wants to do in the world, which is fine...Duke will be a great place for him to get his bearings and get grounded in the first or second direction he'll take in life. But if he had any interest in pursuing digital media arts, I would have encouraged him and his parents to get thier own "Early Decision" to attend Tribeca Flashpoint Academy in Chicago.

I'm slightly partial to Tribeca Flashpoint as I spent several years teaching at the school, but I have incredible faith in their program and the team running the institution -- had my nephew shown interest in becoming a digial media professional, getting an "Early Decision" acceptance into the program at Tribeca Flashpoint Academy would have impressed an already proud uncle even more.

If you are a parent, in particular, check out this recent video they posted: watch it on Vimeo now.
