I’m a motivated and passionate game designer with a broad set of practical and analytical skills. I’ve worked on and released several games, including a VR first-person shooter and a AA real-time grand-strategy game. Throughout the years, I’ve gained key experience in designing complex systems and shaping gameplay via scripting and level design.

Worked alongside a team of designers responsible for balancing and updating a freemium online browser strategy game.
