I'm a software engineer and educator from New Hampshire, specializing in game development. I have strong experience designing and developing complex game systems for single player, small scale multiplayer, and large scale multiplayer projects.
In 2009, I founded Retro Affect, an indie game development studio.
In 2015, I helped launch Game Assembly, a coworking space for game developers in New Hampshire.
In 2016, I joined Southern New Hampshire University's faculty as an instructor for Game Programming and Development.

The year is 2050. In a world where robots have replaced all human jobs, step into the "Job Simulator" to learn what it was like 'to job'. Players can re-live the glory days of work by simulating the ins and outs of being a gourmet chef, an office worker, a convenience store clerk, and more.

Part game, part game show, Upsilon Circuit is an action RPG with only eight contestants playing at a time. Everything is broadcast live for the internet to watch and interact. Each contestant only has one shot, and when they die a new contestant is selected from the viewing audience.
Spectators can interact with the live game in various ways, sending in items, monsters, and influencing the action.
Snapshot is the tale of a lone robot lost in an abandoned world. Armed with only his trusty camera, Pic sets forth on his great adventure. A camera might not seem like enough for a puzzle platforming adventure, but this camera is different from most: It has the ability to capture and remove from the world the very objects that it photographs. Not only that, but it can also use its powers to paste the photos it took back into the environment! Everything that the camera captures is perfectly preserved, and when the photos are restored the objects are restored with it. On top of all of that, this amazing camera can also rotate the photos before they're pasted. Take a picture of an incoming fireball, rotate it and paste it to send it flying into a wall of heavy boxes to knock it out of the way. See what kind of crazy things can happen to Pic with his awesome (and probably magical) camera during the adventure of his life!
