About

I love making things.

 

 

To me, Game Dev is this amazing marriage between so many disciplines. Like film, it brings together visual design, music, dialogue, scenery, movement, lighting, sound...a nearly endless list. But games add interactivity, and therein lies the rub. How can we craft meaningful, emotional experiences while giving players free agency to make their own decisions? Add to that the technical considerations of writing effective and performant code for hardware systems as diverse as their owners and you've got a hell of a challenge. I think games are the new frontier of art, and with VR, AR, and ever evolving ways to interact with other players popping up every day, it's an exciting time to be making games. I want to be on the front lines as it happens. 

These are some things I'm good at:

⦂ Maya, Zbrush + Blender
⦂ XNormal, CrazyBump
⦂ Quixel Suite 2
⦂ Unity 5, Unreal Engine 4
⦂ SourceTree / GitHub
⦂ C# + Visual Studio
⦂ Adobe Creative Suite including Photoshop, Premiere Pro + After Effects
⦂ Microsoft Creative Suite
⦂ Reaper, Pro Tools, Ableton Live

I am also a trained audio engineer and familiar with a audio pipelines as well as a range of mics, audio interfaces, speakers and other hardware.
