I work with the executive producer and other team leads to define a vision for a game and then execute to bring that vision to life. This is done by setting clear goals and building a unified vision in order to lead a design team. Creating appealing characters, captivating visual narratives, addictive game play, and engaging environments. I collaborate with game play designers, story writers, and external luminaries to achieve a unique gaming experience. I also strive to create a collaborative working relationship with other team leads, and avoid anticipated threats to quality.
