Personal

"Is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?"

This is just a place where I keep personal stuff; gardening projects, cooking adventures, doodles I like - that sort of thing.

It probably warrants it's own sub-site, but who's got time for that these days?

I have a blog I just started. I also keep a gratitude journal.

Dish Crew is a game idea I spent some time working on, and plan to eventually get back to. It looks like it’ll take a while though, so I put it on hold for the time being…

The player would be able to pick their levels; Pots &... Read More

Game – Side Test

Launch Date

March 1st, 2022

Project Description

I’ve always wanted to design my own videogame. I can remember doodling level designs when I was 10 years old; little platforms for characters to jump on, equip items, and explore.

About a year ago, I was reflecting on this and decided... Read More

Portfolio – 2001

Project Date

April 1st, 2001

Project Description

This one was definitely created after I graduated, but I believe it reused a model I created for a looping animation I made in art school. It felt particularly detailed (at the time…), and the movements were pretty fun to watch.
