Andrea Phillips is an award-winning transmedia writer, game designer and author. Her book, A Creator's Guide to Transmedia Storytelling, will be published by McGraw-Hill in June 2012. 

Her work includes a variety of educational and commercial projects, including Floating City with Thomas Dolby, The Maester's Path for HBO's Game of Thrones with Campfire Media, The Drunk and On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour Quest with Stitch Media, America 2049 with human rights nonprofit Breakthrough, Routes Game for Channel 4 Education, the independent commercial ARG Perplex City, and The 2012 Experience for Sony Pictures. These projects have variously won the Prix Jeunesse Interactivity Prize, a Broadband Digital award, a BIMA, an IVCA Grand Prix award, the Origins Vanguard Innovation Award, and others. Two of her projects have been nominated for BAFTAs but not won. Thanks to that and her outsized competitive spirit, winning a BAFTA has become one of her paramount goals.

Her indie work includes the Kickstarted collaboration Balance of Powers, the ongoing Twitter horoscopes of Madame Zee, and the forthcoming serial transmedia project Felicity.

Andrea is a co-moderator for the first community of ARG players, the Cloudmakers. This 6,000-member group created many of the methods and social dynamics used by the ARG community to this day. She is also a Fellow of the Futures of Entertainment.

She has spoken at SXSW, MIT Storytelling 3.0, the Power to the Pixel/IFP Cross-Media Forum, ARGfest, DIY Days, and FITC Storytelling X.1, among others.

BIGfrontier started life in 2000 as a rollicking technology party.  Our first event at Drink nightclub drew 1000 attendees and was sponsored by the likes of IBM and Inforte. Our event archives provide a walk through the wild west days of Chicago’s burgeoning technology scene, 2000-2003. Over the y ears we have hosted panels with some of the MIdwest's most important technology leaders, business reporters and pundits.

Speakers/guests have included Gian Fulgoni, Chairman, ComScore networks, Robert Herbold, former COO of Microsoft, Economist Lester Thurow and Joel Kurtzman, former New York Times Op Ed page editor. Our events have won multiple national accolades including the Tower and League of Professional Communicators award.  BIGFrontier has been cited as the best networking event in Chicago by Chicago Magazine and as one of the premier event organizations in the United States in a 2005 Churchill Trust Study.
