Serious inquiries only please.

I bring many years of experience, creativity, and technical skill to the table in any project I take on - and I'm very, very fast. I have, over the years, experienced almost every type of development situation, task, etc. From project planning, to acquiring art, architecture, programming, physics, collision, mood, ambiance, lighting, and general "fun" factor. I'm not just a programmer, I'm a creator of meaningful experiences. I will make the game you envision, and then make it more than you could envision. I approach games like a filmmaker approaches film. I create scenes that captivate players and give them an experience that makes them forget they're playing a game. My portfolio is available at:
