i have a passion for indie games that are aesthetically cute and wholesome. mechanically i like games that ride that wave but also am a fan of games that like to play with irony and juxtaposition.

i went to depaul university where I got a bs in computer game development/design and a minor in animation.

i love working on smaller projects. they always feel more intimate and personal when finished.
