I am a game designer and multimedia developer living in NYC, currently looking for a new position in the video game or entertainment industry.
All of my life I have been fascinated by the power of games as a medium, and the possibilities that they offer for social interaction, entertainment, and education. In 2012 I finished a BA degree in Interactive Multimedia from The College of New Jersey, with a minor in Computer Science and Japanese. I have worked for five gaming/media companies in either intern or employee capacity. The latest of these companies was Scholastic, where I worked on dozens of educational games and interactive quizzes, for use in classrooms across the country. Prior to Scholastic, I had the privilege of working for Avalanche Studios, where I got to help develop the console and PC title Just Cause 3. Additional experience of mine includes game design work though the Manhattan Come Out and Play Festival and the FIGMENT Festival of Art. I also participate in Global Game Jams and attend other industry events, including IGDA meet ups, NYC Gaming meetups, and conferences for industry issues. In my spare time I am a violinist, and enjoy hiking, rock climbing, going to conventions for games and pop culture, and playing/analyzing video games!
