Patrick Pennefather

Sr Lecturer
Simon Fraser University/MDM Program
Patrick is the first prototype of the Centre for Digital Media Cyborg initiative. The goal is to transfer 25 years of industry experience in sound and composition for live and digital entertainment arenas to an educator who facilitates collaborative play, design and problem solving. Patrick is a crowd-surfing, ball playing, improv thinking, stickman design technician, excelling in the extreme sport of whiteboard marker hoarding, of the post-it note philosophy...whatever it takes to solve a problem through prototyping. He's facilitated solution-oriented design playshops for government, universities, ngo, arts and non-profits, Roadhouse Entertainment, EA Canada, Microsoft, Ubisoft, other softs, and the resource industries.
