I'm a Gameplay Programmer and Game Designer from upstate New York. I really enjoy playing and making games that emphasize movement/combat or interesting control schemes.

Why are you studying games?
I'm fascinated by games with tight controls that are able to emphasize a player's skill and understanding of the game's systems. I want to make games that can fulfil that archetype, and inspire the player to keep playing and improve.
What's your secret weapon?
I'm a trained and certified chef. Chop chop
How has the Game Center changed your thinking about games?
The definition of a game is much wider than I initially thought. Folks still can't agree on what's a game and what isn't. It's been really interesting to see a wide diversity of games and playstyles that people consider "fun." It's not so cut and dry.
What's the last great game you played and what's great about it?
Doom Eternal. It's so fast paced with incredibly tight controls and has a very unique approach to mobility and level design. If you look away from the screen for a second, you're dead. Haha shotgun go brrrr
What's your favorite New York City spot?
If you haven't been, you gotta go to Eataly Italian market on 5th & 23rd
