Hello!

I'm a game designer with 12 years of professional game industry experience.
I left the AAA game industry in 2019 to return to Pittsburgh, PA and focus on independent games.
In the AAA industry, I was most recently working on The Last of Us Part II.

I mostly focus on designing, building, and scripting games packed with fun narrative-based gameplay and exciting scripted events. I do system and narrative design as well. I have a penchant for making things easily accessible while still retaining fun gameplay depth.

I thrive in creative and collaborative environments where hard work and passion for making great games is valued,
and where I can leverage my strong technical background to enhance my designs and team.

These older projects chronicle my journey from game programmer to game designer. I performed multiple
roles and used a wide variety of technologies. They were all created at Zynga, Schell Games and Rabid Squirrel Games.
