I’m a professional game designer and entertainment consultant with 10+ years of game development and new media experience. I have released titles on almost every platform from Xbox to iPhone. I specialize in Mobile Games, with a focus on retention, monetization, and social games. Major partners I’ve worked with in the past include: Ubisoft, Midway, Cartoon Network, Jack Daniels, Starbucks, and Lionsgate. I also produced a feature length documentary, Barista, that was distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films.
I am available for consulting on entertainment strategy, game development, and also speaking engagements. I’ve talked at many industry panels and conventions including Comic-Con, the Digital Hollywood Summit, and Anime Banzai. I’ve also been a guest on gaming podcasts and even for the LA School district on becoming a game designer. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any development or speaking needs.
