Composition & Composition — From Novellas and Notes to Stories and Songs
I’m a Senior Game Design Major and Creative Writing and Entrepreneurship & Innovation Minor at Bradley University. I hail from Minnesota and one of the things I like to do best is create stories.
I make music, games, and I write for a myriad of occasions, including: original short stories, business opportunities, video game development documents, and the plot and mechanics information for various Dungeons and Dragons Campaigns.
I am passionate about composition and creating enjoyable experiences for people.
Education – Senior Year student in Bradley University’s Game Design program through the Interactive Media Department. Expected Graduation Date is May 2021.
I’ve Worked in multiple roles with varying teams of artists, producers, programmers, and animators to release projects in accordance with academic deadlines as well as individual goals. Key strengths include the ability to adapt to changing audio demands in a fast-paced development environment.
