Professional Speaking. 

“Andy is one of the sharpest, cleverest writers in the game biz. He brings more to the table than just writing skills, and can explain his narrative ideas in a way that brings the other disciplines on board. His talk at AGDC was one of the conference highlights, and I highly recommend absorbing its lessons to anyone interested in game narrative.” Richard Danksy - Board Writing Track Austin GDC .
