About Me

I am a video game designer attending the DigiPen Institute of Technology, specializing in Gameplay Design.

Gameplay Design for me is at the crossroads between Systems and User Experience Design, the concepting of mechanics and what makes gameplay fun combined with the functionality that helps the experience feel even stronger, keeping players interested. 

My passions aside from game design include gaming (crazy, right?), golf, camping, cooking, and gardening. I enjoy overcoming challenges, solving problems, and most any activity where I can express myself.

I was born and raised in Tumwater, Washington, a small city/town south of Olympia.

 

I initially pursued to DigiPen in the BS in Game Design program, and quickly found that I felt so much more passion towards design and the design process, so I switched to the BA in Game Design program and began pursuing systems and gameplay design.
 

I am currently looking for a gameplay, combat, or systems design position where I can do my best to create exciting gameplay for players, and assist the development team in any way I can.
