Hello.  I’m Mike Dawson, game industry vet, instructor and author of multiple books on games and programming.

I'm currently a Course Director in The Los Angeles Film School's Game Production Department where I develop and teach game programming courses as part of an Associate of Science Degree Program. I've also developed and taught game programming courses for other institutions, including UCLA Extension and The Digital Media Academy.

I continue to work with game industry professionals by offering specialized training for artists, designers, producers, and testers who need to know some programming to excel in their careers.

Feel free to contact me with any questions about my courses, training services, or books.
