I'm Kjartan —


My personal mission is to be a force-multiplier and enabler for creative people.

These days, I’m serving that mission by running Causeway Studios, serving on the board of the Game Academy of the Ozarks, and designing and building tools for Unity users.

I ask difficult questions to facilitate the crafting of great experiences.


I’m available to consult on design for startups, helping you define your problems and opportunities to craft the right solutions.
