Frank Lee, PhD
Lee is the co-founder of Drexel’s Game Design Program and founding director of the Drexel Entrepreneurial Game Studio. He and his students push the limits of creativity in gaming by developing web and mobile games that break down the traditional concepts of video game play. He has helped to elevate Drexel’s Game Design Program to one of the highest regarded programs of its kind in the country.
As part of Philly Tech Week 2013, Lee turned Brandywine Real Estate’s 29-story Cira Centre office building in Philadelphia into a giant game of arcade-style Pong. The hack was recognized as a Guinness World Record in the fall of 2013. Lee has commented on the giant game and the video game industry in stories that ran in The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, ArsTechnica, Polygon and several other outlets.
