About

     I'm an independent game developer with a passion for creativity and originality. All my life I've been gaming- from Mega Man X to Borderlands- and my drive to explore new worlds has never wavered. In my free time, I also like to learn new skills, whether it's programming, rigging, texturing, and more. I enjoy night life, going to bars and clubs as well as playing tabletop RPG's with friends. I'm always interested in new technology and have been keeping a close eye on the development of the VR and AR market.

     I attended Brookdale Community College to learn the basics of 3D modeling, rigging, and animation. I took my education further and transferred to Savannah College of Art & Design, where I developed a passion for game development. I absolutely love designing games and their gameplay systems.

     I have worked with multiple teams and truly enjoy collaborating with my peers. I have garnered an understanding of the full pipeline of games, and put this knowledge to good use in my work. I am currently finishing up my first complete game in Unity, which is a throwback to the Nintendo Game & Watch and Tiger Electronics handhelds.
