Mez Breeze is the Creative Director and Lead Digital Content Creator of Mez Breeze Design. In 2015, Mez has been shortlisted for both the Thiel Grant Award for Online Writing and in the “Games Development” Category of the 2015 MCV Pacific Women In Games List, which profiles the:  “…most influential women across all facets of the Australian and New Zealand Games Industries.” Her globally-exhibited works reside in Collections as diverse as The World Bank, Cornell’s Rose Goldsen Archive at Cornell University and the National Library of Australia. Mez has been labelled “…brain-warpingly clever”, a polymath, and a modern-day James Joyce.

In 2010, filmmaker Tim Burton judged Mez’s digital work “Sk(c)innamon” a winner of the “In a Burton Wonderland” Exhibition Competition (hosted by the  Australian Centre for the Moving Image). Since 2011, Mez has partnered with Dreaming Methods to produce wearable and mobile-oriented projects. Their joint project called “#PRISOM” (a game designed for Wearable Augmented Reality Displays and commissioned for The International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality 2013) was a Finalist of the 2014 Western Australian Premier’s Book Awards in the “Digital Narrative” Category. “Pluto” – their in-development transmedia Project – also made the Finals of the 2014 BBC Writersroom/The Space Prize for Digital Innovation.

As of May 2013, Mez is the only Interactive/Games Writer based outside of the USA to house a comprehensive career archive at Duke University. Her networked, interactive and game-based projects are taught worldwide. Her pioneering codeworks are discussed and analysed in publications varying from academic journals to digital handbooks. Mez is currently an Advisor to The Mixed Augmented Reality Art Research Organisation, a Senior Research Affiliate with The Humanities and Critical Code Studies Lab, and was a Judge of Bournemouth University’s 2014 New Media Writing Prize.
