[About Me]

My name is Craig Morrison, an occasional daydreamer, enthusiastic creative, storyteller, and someone who will try his hand at any creative endeavor that catches my attention. Photographer, artist, writer, and generally curious creature who has made a living traveling the world making video games for almost twenty years now.

I currently make that living with the fantastic folks at DICE, home of the Battlefield games.

I have a passion for game design, and in particular massively multiplayer and online gaming. I also enjoy painting toy soldiers way too much. You will see a lot of that here. No apologies.


Previously with Blizzard Entertainment in Irvine, California, where I spent eight years as a Design Manager and Principal Designer on World of Warcraft. Before that I spent almost a decade working with Norwegian developer Funcom on Massively Multi-player Online games (MMOs) like Anarchy Online, Age of Conan, and The Secret World.

I also currently lecture and teach Game Design at the University of California, Irvine, as part of their Computer Game Science (CGS) major.

I am lucky enough to get opportunities to be asked to speak about games, meet interesting new people, and share experiences and stories at conventions, trade shows, and other events.
