    Producer and Game Designer

    Philippines - Last active: 22 days ago

    I started my career in game development as a game designer, and I’ve since specialized in gameplay design. I’ve worked on several games falling under different genres, from AAA to casual. I’ve also worked as a producer, and project coordinator, expanding my skillset. I used to run my own game development company, producing a couple of mobile games, the first of which caught the attention of a few big-name publishers, most notably Chillingo and Big Fish Games. I’ve moved on since then and continued to produce and design mobile games for my last company, and independently.
