I have experience making puzzle games for game jams, and so far I enjoy them. I like being able to create a set of mechanics around a theme and then use those as tools to build out several puzzles or levels. I like to play games with a lot of character that aren't afraid to not take themselves seriously. I also really enjoy co-op games, especially couch co-op. Communal gaming experiences are the best and most memorable for me.
Mostly game design, and then I dabble in coding to fill in when necessary. I used to have artistic bones in my body but it's been way too long since I've exercised them; it's definitely a skill I would like to get into decent shape, especially during jams when we need an artist in a pinch.
I like to play music. I was raised as a classically trained double bassist and that's really influenced my growth as a person over the years.
