Shawn DeSouza-Coelho focuses on the intersections of narrative and play within video game design. As a Creative Director with the Games Institute, in association with the Straford Festival of Canada, he is currently designing digital games that entertain as well as educate youth on the life/works of William Shakespeare as well as the Stratford Festival itself.

As a practicing magician, his book, Metamagic: An Introduction (2013), explores the art of magic as a medium for discourse. This treatise argues for a paradigmatic shift in the practice of the art form, one that enables active co-authorship of illusion in the pursuit of deeper personal, emotional, and spiritual connection with the audience.
