I wouldn't call myself a hard-core gamer, but I like to relax with what are known in the business as "casual" video games. These games are typically easy to learn how to play but can be quite challenging to master. As a producer, I've helped create games from a number of different genres, as well as several adaptations of popular licensed properties. As a designer, I am most interested in combining story with game play, and this is evident in the hidden object/adventure and social games I've had the privilege to help write and design for Suricate Software, JoinDots, Playcademy, and Nat Geo Games. These games are available across a variety of platforms, including PC and Mac downloadable, CD, Nintendo DS, and online gaming sites.
Many of these games are currently available - click each image to find out more!
