Kurt

CEO & Founder

I am the CEO and founder of Simple Machine.
Design is my everything.
Culture is my most prized creation.
Games and interaction are my muse.
I design with a contrarian philosophy, looking in all other directions except the most treaded. I received my MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons. It was there that I learned to program and design games. I started Simple Machine as a solo independent shop until I realized the true joy of empowering others and building a dream team of happy, healthy, and ultra talented individuals.
