I am currently a senior at Champlain College, where I am majoring in Game Art and Animation and minoring in Game Programming. My areas of concentration are environment and technical art, with a focus on shader programming, tool creation, workflow automation, procedural modeling, and simulation.
Although my interest in video game development goes back to my early childhood, my interest in game development as a career can be traced back to 2015, when I visited the studios of TT Games in the UK. I was subsequently asked to design several models for LEGO Worlds (2017), which were featured in promotional materials and the game when it launched.
Outside of my studies, I am an avid fan of LEGO. In 2018, I was invited to join New Elementary, a leading online publication targeting adult fans of LEGO (AFOLs) as a regular contributor. As a writer/photographer for the site, I analyze the latest LEGO parts and techniques, review sets, and attend media events. In addition, I have been a member of the New England LEGO Users Group (NELUG) since 2018, and currently serve on the club’s Executive Committee.
When not developing games or building with LEGO bricks, I enjoy hiking, biking, boating, reading, and discovering new hobbies.
