This group is dedicated to exploring what it will take to create a game that can be considered a work of art–something that is valued highly by society and generally agreed to be a quality addition to a person’s life.This does not mean visually-striking or “artsy” games–this means leveraging the gaming experience to strike a balance between two imaginations: the one of the game designer and the one of the player. How can we create a game that leaves room for interpretation but is also engaging…See More

Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
I went to SVA for Computer Art so I am really interested in using gaming or human interaction in general in combination with art. So, anyone looking to do fun and interesting projects that push the boundaries of human interaction. Additionally, anything education related. I recently started teaching course in the Game Design Department at Becker College, so maybe some interaction/compilation with similar majors in other schools.
Games you’ve worked on ...
I worked on one small game for the iPhone with my fiance but it isn't in the app store anymore. It was called ShapeFactory and it was a simple puzzle game. We like to work together though and plan to work on a new idea soon.
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
I love learning, so I'm always trying new things. I have the most experience with traditional art mediums as well as Photoshop, Illustrator and Maya. I also have a fair amount of experience with Unity, HTML/CSS, processing, and electronics.
Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
Spyro and Crash Bandicoot- These games defined my childhood, my neighbor and I would play for hours.
Knights of the Old Republic- This game (as well as Star Wars in general) inspired me to seek a career in gaming and interactive art.
World of Warcraft- A 7 year addiction that I shook in 2010 but it was fun while it lasted, especially because my guild was my dorm in college and the game really brought us all closer together irl.
