My Approach & Values

There are a lot of problems  in the world. “Shouldn’t you do something more serious than making games?” This is a question I’ve heard more than a few times. Growing up, playing games with my family were times we had real joy in my childhood home. In college I was introduced to role playing games and I saw people choose to engage in community also find joy.

Poet, Toi Derricotte wrote ‘Joy is an act of resistance.” I make games to build community, inspire joy and help everyone feel included.  Is that serious enough for you? Have fun. 

My Goal

  • Games that are inclusive
  • Games that are fun the first time and better the next
  • Games that are memorable
  • Games that are easy to learn
  • Games that serve a wider audience.
