What is the best part about your current position?
Coordinating with multiple departments to get my ideas fully implemented.
What is the most interesting or enjoyable thing that you have gotten to do in your career?
Creating interesting characters from concept to skill tree.
Why did you choose to get your education from SMU Guildhall?
To get a concrete direction in game/level design so I can focus my efforts to tangible goals.
How did SMU Guildhall prepare you for your career in gaming, and what impact has it had on your life?
Helped me focus my efforts into very specific aspects of game design. In addition, the Guildhall helped me learn how to communicate with other disciplines to express my ideas. Collaborative work really translated well from the Guildhall to the industry.
What advice would you offer for students looking to get into gaming?
Communicate well with your colleagues and learn how to adapt to working with different personalities. Know your strengths and weaknesses and be able to use that knowledge to prepare you for every situation.
