Who are you?

I’m a Florida native who came to Tennessee specifically for Fivestone. This is also my first time living outside of my home state so the adventure is a nice bonus. Favorite things include heavy metal, BBQ and lazy weekends.

Why do what you do?

I’ve been jotting down ideas for video games for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until I decided to pursue a degree in the field that I began honing my technical skills. After my first semester spent programming I found that I enjoyed the development process as much as the design process so I worked tirelessly to become proficient at both. I then discovered many other ways to put my skills to work and I became enthralled with the world of interactive media in general. The opportunities to work with cutting-edge technologies and pioneer new possibilities have me thoroughly hooked.

Why Fivestone?

Quite simply, Fivestone is the perfect fit for my talents and interests. I was hoping to find a studio that was ambitious in their pursuit of opportunities in the interactive space but also maintained an interest in developing games. Fivestone is all that and also has the excellent staff to do it.

Something random?

Some of my fingers are double jointed. This isn’t terribly useful but occasionally it’s amusing.
