I am a student at Boise State University studying the Games, Interactive Media, and Mobile Design major. That wasn't always the plan though! Originally, I wanted to be a neurosurgeon and was even accepted into the University of Rochester, NY for my undergrad. After some soul searching (and a realization of the cost both in regards to my wallet as well as personal life) I decided to do something closer to my heart.
Why games? An excellent inquisition indeed. The answer is quite simple: I want to make something that impacts people such that video games have impacted me. The possibilities of storytelling and emotional impact go far beyond that of movies or books due to the interactive nature that permeates the artform. They are an anchor when your ship is sailing off course. They are, without a doubt in my mind, the most expansive form of digital human experience.
I want to work with you on your next project. I am eager to explore new ideas. As some folks in my cohort of GIMM students have put it, I don't like to work on things because of a deadline or obligation, I like to work on things because I get addicted to solving the puzzle each project presents. I am always learning technical skills and am always excited to work with other like-minded people.
