What's going on?

I'm a video game programmer living as a global digital nomad. In the last year I've lived in 8 different cities in 6 countries, including LA, Portland, Seattle, Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, and Bangalore.

September 2014: I'm doing a new lifestyle experiment! Take Half Away challenges you to eat only half your portion size at each meal for 30 days and see what happens. I'm doing it to curb a mild overeating habit, explore my relationship with food, and practice writing.

I am working on a new game! Jump Tanks is a fast-paced 5 vs 5 Action RPG that focuses on teamwork and competitive play. It is a shooter for players that love relying on their skills but also enjoy the depth and customization of RPGs.
