Résumé

I live and breathe game design and entertainment and I thrive on fusing intelligence with creativity: I aspire for a career in Game Design. More generally, I am looking for an environment in the industry of media and technology in which I am surrounded by individuals as creatively expressive and passionate as I am – individuals with the drive to make incredible things.
