About Me

I am a Game Design Major from Joliet, Illinois who would like nothing more than to work alongside respected members of the industry in designing interesting and fun games. I've loved the medium of video games pretty much since I was old enough to walk, and my fascination with the unique opportunities that the dimension of interactivity presents. Beyond simply playing them, though, I get a profound enjoyment out of designing and building the kinds of experiences that I enjoy in games, and that, more than anything, is why I want to design games for a living. Well, that and the gambling debts. When I'm not designing or playing games, though, I usually enjoy watching video essays on those subjects, and others such as movies, animation, and history (I am, in fact, getting a minor in it). I also enjoy lifting weights, listening to podcasts, playing my bass guitar, performing improv, and generally making my friends laugh whenever I can. I'm a very sociable person, and I can (and will) work with all kinds of diverse people and help them all share a singular vision for a project. I have made around eight games already, and I can't wait to make some more!

Featured Projects


Speluminator

Speluminator

I worked as the Level Designer on a team of three to make "Speluminator" in the fall of 2019. Made for Unity 2D, "Speluminator" is a top-down Zelda-like, Metroidvania game. Players take the role of Lux, a fearless adventurer exploring a treacherous dungeon, equipped only with a single lantern.

Apocalicious: A Recipe for Disaster

Apocalicious: A Recipe for Disaster

I worked as a designer, as well as the lead writer and voice actor on "Apocalicious: A Recipe for Disaster", a Unity game made for Fuse 2019. "Apocalicious" is a Cooking Mama-inspired game that has players completing short mini-games in order to "bake" a pastry-based giant monster.

Heroes of Montemoth

Heroes of Montemoth

I've worked as the Dungeon Master of a Dungeons and Dragons campaign/custom game mode which I've called "Heroes of Montemoth." This campaign has taken inspiration from real history in order to make a grounded fantasy world.

Compliment Clash is a 2-D typing game where you, the bravest knight in all of Complimentaria, must use your compassion, love, and trusty keyboard to type out compliments to estranged and downright sad creatures. The pen may be mightier than the sword but it is the keyboard that will pierce even the hardest of hearts and bring smiles upon Complimentaria and the whole world!
