Squirrel Eiserloh is a veteran game programmer and designer seeking to find ways to help games discover their full potential as a medium. His interests lie in the curious intersections among math, design, programming, music, physics, education and games. Squirrel's path through game development has spanned a number of genres from early online MUDs to action/adventure/role-playing videogames, casual games, puzzle games, experimental games and shooters. A strong advocate of education and creative collaboration initiatives, he teaches video game programming as a faculty lecturer at The Guildhall at SMU. In his spare time, he organizes a group of area developers who conduct 48-hour experimental "game jam" sessions and serves on the board of the Dallas IGDA.
