Writing — From Prose to Poetry, Stories to Summaries, and Everything In-Between
I’m a Junior Game Design Major and Creative Writing and Entrepreneurship and Innovation Minor at Bradley University. I hale 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, poetry, video game development documents, and the plot and mechanics information for a Dungeons and Dragons Campaign I run!
I am passionate about composition and creating enjoyable (or at least interesting) experiences for people. You can find a way to access everything through my website: http://greyhillsproductions.com/
Education – Senior Year student in Bradley University’s Game Design program through the Interactive Media Department. Expected Graduation Date is May 2021.
