About Me

I'm a 26-year-old independent game developer, musician, and media enthusiast. I was raised in the inspirational landscape of Alexandria, New Hampshire, a tiny town in the heart of the mountains; my interest in video games was stirred by the equally inspirational halls of Funspot, the largest arcade in the world, and a brief car ride away from my childhood home.

I'm currently working on pre-production of Touched by the Void, my pet project, and Collectems at WretchWorks. I was also the lead developer (2013-2015) and music director for The Legend of Doodle (which is still in production, though I am not currently working on it).

I was also a co-founder of WretchWorks' predecessor, The Layabouts, which was active between 2010 and 2015. I created a few small games there, including Block Dude X, a 10th anniversary-themed remake of/tribute to a beloved TI-83+ calculator game. In addition, I've provided assistant programming/design on many The Layabouts projects programmed by Nate Wiesel, including Cylor vs. The Evil Mutant Cats! and ViViD.

I also compose music. You can head to my Bandcamp or SoundCloud to hear a selection of my work, including tracks from The Legend of Doodle and other miscellaneous composition work.

I was the music director and lead composer for the soundtrack to the free fangame Sonic Time Twisted; the soundtrack, Dueling Ages, is free to download. I am also a staff member of the YouTube channel SiIvaGunner, infamous uploader of humorous bait-and-switch video game remixes.

As for my personal tastes? My favorite TV shows include Breaking Bad, Steven Universe, Twin Peaks, Game of Thrones, and Fargo. My favorite films include The Truman Show, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The World According To Garp, Blade Runner and its sequel, and Fargo. (Again. I really like Fargo.) My favorite bands include The Beatles, Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, Gorillaz, and They Might Be Giants.

I currently live in Denver, Colorado.
