Squirrel Eiserloh

Game Designer / Programmer
SMU Guildhall Faculty
Topic: Principles of Game Design

Squirrel (Brian) Eiserloh is a veteran programmer/designer seeking to find ways to help games discover their full potential as a medium. His interests lie in the curious intersections among games, math, design, programming, music, physics, and education. 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 math education and creative collaboration initiatives, he is currently teaching video game programming as a faculty lecturer at The Guildhall at SMU.
