Why are you studying games?
Because I believe that games are the best medium to convey emotions, ideas and form human connections. These are the things that I wanted to learn, and that's what lead me to making games
Describe your favorite project made by a classmate.
Grass Mud Horse by Toby Do, Emi Schaufeld, and Julia Wang is definitely my favorite game made by my classmates!
How has the Game Center changed your thinking about games?
It has made me realize that making games is the toughest, yet most satisfying thing in the world. That moment when someone is playing your game and you get the exact response/ emotions that you wanted them to display is a moment of pure bliss...
What's the last great game you played and what's great about it?
No Man's Sky! Being a huge fan of the science fiction genre, I loved this game for it's aesthetics, soundtrack and its huge scale! I also love how it makes me feel a child-like sense of wonder and excitement, each time I enter a new and unknown planet, wondering what hidden secrets and unique flora and fauna I might find here
What's your favorite New York City spot?
Definitely the Bay Ridge Pier! Not many people know about it, but I think it offers the best views of the NYC skyline from a distance!
