John is Director of Educational Engagement at Carnegie Mellon University Entertainment Technology Centre. In this interview we talk about his early years and his background that has led to a career looking at how entertainment can intersect with education. We also talk about John's childhood and experience in France, what he studied, why he loves lego so much, what it was like to compete at lego and the role it plays in this life today.
