Tim Cleary has worked as a creative for more than a decade, applying his unique talents to a wide array of fields, from ministry to game design to consulting. As a youth leader and international public speaker, Tim is as comfortable on a stage before thousands as he is around a board table or a camp fire. Youth ministry in Auckland, New Zealand, is where Tim first found his feet. As a fan of great fiction and as a creative writer himself, he worked at the intersection of faith and imagination, retelling the stories of scripture for a generation hungry for a more dynamic way of engaging with the world and with issues of spirituality. Inspired by C.S. Lewis and Tolkien, and swept up in the worlds of fantasy and scifi by the likes of George Lucas, Tim began to develop his own stories.Tim was the creative mind behind The Aetherlight, an online game that retells the story of the Bible to pre-teens in a fantasy, steampunk world governed by a wicked emperor, an army of automaton hordes, and a corrosive, insidious fog. The Aetherlight has taken Tim to the US, where he fronts the campaign to introduce new players to the game, via public events, conventions, TV and radio spots, print media and blogs. All the while, Tim continues to develop new fictional worlds for future release.In a nutshell, Tim is a worldbuilder, crafting new worlds that others can enjoy in gaming and fiction, but also helping churches, businesses, creatives and individuals, reimagine their own worlds in new, exciting and dynamic ways.
