I’ve always been fascinated by video games. They’ve been a part of my life as long as I remember.I grew up playing on the Gamecube, eventually gaining a fascination with retro games, mainly on the NES and SNES. And as the industry continues to evolve, I repeatedly discover new reasons why I love the medium.
I love making games, both alone and with a team. Making a game from scratch and seeing it come to life is a feeling I can’t get enough of, which is why I often do game jams. My favorite games are the ones that go out of their way to be weird, like Baba is You and Untitled Goose Game. Not only are they nontraditional in terms of concept, but they offer new gameplay experiences never seen before them.
The fact that I’ve been able to ideate and cooperate with others on projects like these is unreal to me. In four years I’ve experienced everything from programming, to user experience, to 3D modeling. And the people I’ve met along the way have only accelerated the learning process by helping me see games through many different perspectives. It’s been a wonderful experience, and I can’t wait for whatever comes next.
Vociferous Patch Attack
A game jam game where one player drives, one player shoots, and both scream into the computer's microphone in order to repair things. I was in charge of designing and programming the spawning system, as well as creating the interface and programming the microphone input.
Rube-E IOS App
A mobile app meant to teach children the fundamentals of human anatomy through various interactive modules. I was tasked with designing and implementing some of the user interface over my internship at Jump Simulation and Trading last summer.
