No matter the project, I am driven to make the best experience I can. Inspiration, unique ideas, and twists on classic ideas fuel my drive and passion.
However, ideas do not magically appear out of thin air, they have an origin, no matter how elusive it may be. To create these origins, both for ideas now and in the future, I go out of my way to seek new and different experiences.
Whether that experience is the meaning behind a movie or the feeling of a song, a pivotal historical event, the taste of a food, or simply a brief moment, I draw from every type of experience I have to find inspiration and to inspire those around me to create the best work we can.
Execution > Idea. Without proper execution, great ideas become missed opportunities or even forgotten entirely. I am a Designer because design is execution. My interests and talents lie in properly executing upon ideas, whether they be mine or others', to bring them to fruition.
Determining the feeling and emotion that a game, a mechanic, a level, or an encounter will deliver on is key to how I approach design. While it is fun to run wild with potential ideas, ignoring the delivery of a real emotion will only hurt the experience, so I begin there.
Looking at the past offers many unique stories and events that have exciting potential for games and design. Proper research and endless curiosity only enhance design and are two things I always bring to my work.
