Besides traditional game projects with branching narrative, I've written a number of other interactive media pieces ranging from short films to mobile story experiences.
I've written short stories and films, screenplays and radio shows, and a slew of other passive, static media over the years.
Godot, GameMaker Studio 2, and Unity are my tools of choice. With numerous completed game projects under my belt, I'm not only adept at makin' em, but love doing so.
Self-hosted solutions, web based B2B tools, automated workflows, game libraries, and low-level Linux solutions are all tooling projects I've completed.
From managing a 2-person development project (I was one of them!) to multiple teams both internal and remote, I've made sure projects were finished to their fullest potential.
I've worked in digital marketing since 2016, working with TEDx and large corporations to small startups.

I'm a recent graduate from SFU's School of Interactive Arts and Technology, with a love for imaginative, stylistic, and empathetic narratives. In addition to screenwriting and student projects, I’ve also written for, developed, and designed 2 commercial titles, 3 independent games, and a number of ongoing in-progress works.
Having worked in small independent teams and studios, I’ve had the opportunities to explore the gamut of game development and wear the many hats the industry comes with. I've used my skills in screenwriting, short story writing, and narrative design to bring compelling interactive stories and experiences to life. Along with my writing experience in television and games, I've designed and developed a script-driven, scalable, and branching narrative system for games, capable of rendering arbitrary amounts of dialogue choices, story branches, script lines, and interactable/scriptable characters.
Additionally, I have 4+ years in web development and programming, which lends itself well to learning new technologies in a technical environment. Writing for both traditional and interactive fiction has taught me much about the caveats of each discipline, and has reinforced the importance of a well written narrative.
In addition to my experience, my degree in Interactive Arts and Technology will allow me to do my work in accordance with all relevant design principles and practices. My previous experience in leadership positions has taught me the essential soft skills to work well in a team dynamic, and the autonomy of working alone.
If you're seeing this, I'm looking for work!
