About me

Someone who sees the order in the chaos. Someone who can tackle any design challenge head on no matter how complicated the subject matter. I am a Digital Chef. Over the last 14 years, I have been creating games that educate, engage and develop the player's skills while expanding their knowledge. I have a hunger for problem solving and view each new challenge as an opportunity. Has your team been looking for me?
