Education

2007 – 2012

Northern Arizona University

BA Visual Communication Class of 2012

Studying in the northern mountainous region of Arizona that it probably stole from Colorado was a welcome break from blistering heat and the perfect chance to see what this “snow” business was all about. I started in Computer Science before switching to Visual Communication when I discovered how much I love design.

Those two years of programming paid off when I took a cross-disciplinary game design class where design majors were paired up with CS majors. With that experience I was able to communicate with my teammates more effectively. That was what solidified my love of game design and working with people from other disciplines to make something great.
