About Me

I'm a lover of game design and math with a focus on systems and spreadsheets.

Currently enrolled in UCSC Game Masters with 1.5 years of experience in online free-to-play PC games, and soon to be a Systems Designer intern with Sony Santa Monica Studios.

I will be glad to geek out on expected values, balancing loops, AI, vectors, macroeconomics, most things really! I'm always excited to learn.
