Since this project started in the Summer of 2019, I've been acting as the director of a team of 5, while also working on 3D art and programming for the game.

W&M is a 2 player cooperative driving game where one person is a driver that controls a food delivery kart, and the other player is a chef that sits in the back of the car and cooks special meals. The two must work together to deliver food to hungry customers throughout a vibrant and bustling city.
I will be directing ~20 people from Summer 2020 - Spring 2021 on this upcoming USC Games capstone project.
Role: Designer, 3D Modeller
Planet Quest is a 3D printed strategy board game where players race to explore the galaxy. Players discover planets, complete quests, strategize ship upgrades, and battle each other to be the first to explore the ends of the galaxy. Our aim is to create an approachable, yet deep gameplay experience for those new to the strategy game genre.
Role: Gameplay Programmer
Ginkgo is a 3D first person atmospheric adventure with Asian horror influences in which you solve puzzles with a magic needle.
Make amends with your estranged mother after her death by exploring a dreamlike world that shows life from her perspective.
A game with retro vibes where players must use the affordances of a tape recorder to solve puzzles in 3D. Instead of the tape recorder recording audio, it instead records the movement of objects. Players must record, play, rewind, and pause various objects to make their way through familiar spaces.
This isn't a game, but it is something I'm proud of. Money, Inc. is a short film about a young businessman (played by myself) who is having some trouble running his grandfather's company. Who better to call for assistance than the fine folks at Money, Inc? This was directed by my good friend Avery Wolahan.
During this summer I was also teaching at a tech camp and working on Spenser's Challenge.
Cursehole is a short film about a bunch of kids battling a demon in a game of cursed Corn Hole. I was the Assistant Director on this project and helped keep track of shot lists, corral people, and performed several other miscellaneous tasks. It was a week-long shoot, almost exclusively at night, in a partially confederate graveyard in Kansas City. It was extremely cold, and extremely fun.
The premier vaporwave scorpion arcade survival game, CRAWL N BRAWL. Fight for your life in 3 different arenas as a scorpion with a sword for a tail. Made for the 2018 Global Game Jam. This game is profoundly terrible in the best ways.
This is the first game I ever made. It's on my old laptop and I'm in the process of digging it up to put on here. I'm proud of every game that I make. It's kinda my job to love them as the person who made them. So I'm trying to proudly display all my stuff here.
