I love game design. I have produced about 90 titles to this point, doing all my own game design, programming, artwork, and sound engineering (I do get help on some of these things on certain projects). These game have totaled hundreds of millions of plays and are (mostly) free to play and easily accessible. Most are available on this site.
I am intrigued by simple ideas. In a time of complexity in gaming I like distilling simple ideas into fun experiences. You’ll find most of my work to be short, 10 minute to 1 hour games.

My game development upbringing is an interesting one. As a kid I was not allowed to play video games after being caught sneaking out of bed to play. After age 10 I found myself banned from games but constantly trying to find outlets. Time with friends, minutes after class, and cell phones became haven for short-term gameplay experiences. In a way producing games was a way to play them.
By the end of high school I started publishing my work online to share. By the time I reached college my work started reaching thousands of visits, and soon millions. I built a strong relationship and support with Armor Games at this time, and soon after I was employed for 5+ years as Head of Game Development.
Currently I am a game developer at Kongregate.
From a few hours to several months in production, each of these games is made a whole lot of love and effort. I hope you enjoy.
