I have an Advanced Diploma in Game Development after 3 years of educational experience from Niagara College of Canada in Welland, Ontario. I have worked on almost all phases of production in game art, from design, documentation (creating GDDs), asset modelling, animation, UV'ing and texturing, as well as their implementation into Unity Engine (with HDRP). I have also overseen and managed a team of 3 other artists as a lead in a 3rd-year college production over the span of 8 months.
I am familiar with the game development process in co-operation with other departments, mainly programming, with the addition of voice acting and graphic design.

I have attended Global Game Jams in 2020 and 2023. Here, I've worked projects from start to finish with teammates who are already established in Indie Development. The projects' workflows tend to be on-the-fly and fast-paced, allowing us to assemble moderately-complex games in the span of 48 hours. You can find work I was involved in here.
I also made an attempt at starting my own indie studio in 2021 into early 2022, prior to my first industry employment; re-hashing an old IP from and with former colleagues from my college days. Here I led a team of 2 programmers 2 other artists and contracted a musician; but ultimately failed to produce an Alpha due to unforeseen life & career availability issues with most members. However; we managed to produce a GDD, soundtrack and semi-working demo in the span of 8 months (part-time between all of our day-jobs).
