Joey Hannes

Game Designer at Kiloo
If Joey is qualified to have any kind of title, dreamer is it. As a kid, his teachers were concerned about how often he would be caught day dreaming rather than doing his work. Many years later he is now encouraged to focus that day dreaming potential to create and test new concepts for Kiloo Games. Following dreams has lead him from his home in sunny Florida, to mountain climbing in areas too remote to have a phone signal, to teaching design for digital storytelling, and now has him making games here in Aarhus for the last three years. Standing on the stage to represent TED has been a longtime dream for Joey as well and he is very excited to be sharing that experience with you!
