About Me

Hi there! I’m a 2D/UI video game artist, currently employed at HitPoint Studios in Amherst, MA.

For over 6 years, I’ve been busy creating shiny art and intuitive user interfaces for games on all sorts of platforms –  including Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and DS, PC, Facebook, and mobile.

I also dabble in writing my own games, mostly using the Java game library libgdx. Each project usually just a little prototype in an attempt to learn something new. For example, creating my own UI-toolkit for creating menus and 2D animations, particle emitters, AI pathing, etc. Sometimes they turn into finished games 😛

When not in front of a computer, I like hiking and backpacking in the White Mountains, indoor rock climbing at the local gym, and homebrewing tasty beer.  Mmmm beer.

Science!

I’ve got a couple computers running BOINC, donating their CPU time while I’m not busy playing video games and looking at pictures of cats on Reddit.
