Who Am I?

My name is Michael Iantorno and I am currently a master’s candidate in Concordia University’s Media Studies (MA) program. My research focuses on video game hacking, fan cultures, media policy, and digital scholarship.

Prior to arriving at Concordia, I spent ten years working in the Canadian media industry. This included a five year stint as a radio producer at Accessible Media Inc where my work focused on advocacy and social justice issues. My sound projects have been recognized by the RTDNA, NCRA, IAAIS, and New York Festivals, and I currently serve as a jury member for the NYF Radio Awards.

In my spare time, I pursue video game hacking, short feature writing, and tabletop game design. My projects have received thousands of downloads and have been featured in books, courses, magazines, contests, blogs, and more.
