I’m a programmer and sysad, and have been in a bunch of startups. Been yelling at games since CLOAD STARTREK.BAS and still keep buying them. Why? WHY!? I like mil-sims, RPG, and survival horror. Lately I’ve been going for a chill vibe, including having fun listening to vinyl again.

I'm a gamer and digital artist in my free-time. My first games were Sonic The Hedgehog and Spryo The Dragon, and I've been entranced ever since. My favorite things to do are design characters and develop stories. I'm a PS2 and Gamecube kid, so I get a lot of inspiration from JRPGs and early 2000's 3D platformers.

  • Sandbox games
  • 3D platformers

I specialize in providing outstanding customer service and have a hunger for technology. I started gaming as a young child on my Nintendo and also thoroughly enjoyed the Final Fantasy series through my teenage years.
