About Me

I utilize both, my passion for games and natural ability of communication and organization, to manage technical aspects of any game development project as well as creating, maintaining and implementing a master schedule to ensure successful completion of multiple assigned project tasks. As a Producer, I understand that through closely monitoring cross disciplined teams and tracking their progress allows for successful anticipation of production issues which can be avoided by coordinating proper resources and finding effective solutions. As a positive and self motivated individual, I work calmly under pressure and seek to bring out the best creative talent from each team member. I ultimately enjoy seeing a project go from inception to complete deliverable game product with the highest quality.
