About Me

I am a game design student that is passionate about game development and working with others. I like to spend my time both in and out of the classroom being creative and productive. Game jams and game conferences are some of my favorite things to attend and do and I have even had the opportunity to showcase one of my games last year at the game conference Dreamhack. I hope to one day either start my own game company or work for an indie studio as well as attend and speak at as many conferences as I can. Alongside game development, I enjoy teaching and have had the honor of working with The National Student Leadership Conference both this year and last year to share my knowledge about game design and help shape the future generation. The biggest room in the world is the room for improvement and with all the wonderful people I work with on a day to day basis as well as my drive/passion I am able to improve every day.

Match-Ride Rescue is a side-scrolling arcade game. You play as an insect rescue ranger named Wick and bravely pilot a tiny match-powered hot-air balloon. Your goal is to save other bugs from a flood. You adventure through a forest, avoiding thorns, water droplets, and other obstacles. You must conserve the balloon's fuel to successfully traverse the landscape, collecting matches to refuel. Drifting above pools of water and riding through gusts of wind, you must save all the bugs you can and deliver them to safety.
Space Slam is a multiplayer game played on an arcade table using trackballs to control the players. Players can choose their character and get ready to slam - into each other! Players collect powerups, bounce off walls and knock others into deadly lasers. When a player kills another, the player gains a point but if the player dies, they will lose a point. The player with the most points wins and becomes the Space Slam champion!
