WORKS RESUME

About

I'm an avid gamer, productivity enthusiast, and coffee lover currently residing in Las Vegas, NV. When I was eight, my family moved from Guam to the mainland USA where we settled down in Las Vegas, NV. After attending a tech-focused high school in LV in their 4-year Computer Science program, I decided to pursue additional studies in Computer Science at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, CA.

At USC, I majored in Computer Science (Games), part of the joint games program between the Viterbi School of Engineering and the School of Cinematic Arts while also taking a specialization in Cyber Security from the Information Technology Program.

Why make games?

I found myself drawn to games because they engaged and immersed me like no other medium. I'm a fan of great storytelling and find that narrative-driven games with a good mix of action and adventure are my sweet spot. My ultimate goal is to make a living creating fun, immersive experiences for anyone to enjoy.
