Both art and games have always been an important part of my life. From marathon Counter-Strike nights with friends, to holiday Trivial Pursuit bouts with my family, to long hours getting 100% completion on every level, games have brought me closer to people and helped take the stress out of my life.
I was pretty excited the day I realized that I could combine my two favorite things and make a career out of it. I received my BFA in Illustration from Minnesota then shipped myself off to The Guildhall at SMU. There, I got a Masters degree in Interactive Technology with a specialization in Art Creation (fancy talk for “Masters in Game Art”). I’ve been in the game industry for years now and am excited to see where the road will take me.
I’ve known the Gamer Girls for a while now. Each of them pop in and out of my life occasionally and remind me to enjoy games instead of just make and critique them. They also remind me that being a pinup isn’t about trying to look sexy, it’s knowing you already are and loving it.
