I'm a narrative designer for video games with a passion for interactive storytelling. As a writer with over 15 years experience, my career spans multiple "medias": comics, audio fiction, tabletop games, cartoons – the whole enchilada. At 17, I wrote and recorded parody songs in my bedroom that were played on radio stations around the world. Today, my clients include Warner Bros, Ubisoft, Disney, Capcom, and Lionsgate. The special abilities listed on my character sheet include Story Structure, Branching Paths, Genre Fiction, and Matching Brand Voice (as well as Polymorph and Fire Immunity).
