I went to Vancouver Film School for Game Design back in 2012. During my year there I fell into the role of being an artist. I had taken 3D modeling classes a long time ago in High School, but I never thought of myself as an artist. After graduating from VFS I ended up working as a Quality Assurance contractor at EA. I remember telling myself that I would only be there for a year before I moved up or moved out. 4 years later I was still there as QA with the most amazing people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. I wasn’t fulfilled at all working just as QA though, so I ended up quitting my job to try and make it on my own.

In the early 2000’s I got my first PC with a dial-up modem and immediately found myself in the world of game cracking. It was love at first sight with computers, and I went to school to see what avenue I wanted to try. Coding instantly grabbed me and I’ve been enamored with it ever since. I have a passion for building things, I’m pretty much always working on something on the side. Typically it’s been web apps, but I’ve created an iOS/Android game using Corona SDK, which was an interesting experience (pro-tip: just find/hire someone to do frontend/graphics unless you REALLY like it). I’ve mostly worked in web development, but always wanted to get into games a little more, so happily enough during my tenure at EA I met Trevor who knew a lot about building games with Unity. We decided to start working together, with him running the front and myself running the back.. it’s been love ever since ❤
