2D Game Artist and Visual Designer
San Jose, CA
Social and mobile games artist for production and marketing. Loves cute things, games, handmade and bicycling.
I have been a creative artist in the social gaming circle for over 5 years creating fun and eye catching illustrations for interactive environments and personalized character dress up for Gaia Online. I’ve provided designs of characters and creatures for mobile gaming gigs such as Gaia Interactive’s Monster Galaxy and Rumble Kitten.
I also have knowledge of marketing art and branding with Kabam Inc. I have been involved with the production of ads, re-sizing, localizing, and designing across web, social, and mobile platforms. I’ve also done work that involves remastering low-res game and art assets to hi-res for use in promoting Kabam’s games.
My latest gig that I had the honor of working on was TinyCo's and Fox Digital Entertainment's Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. I've been involved with the production of creating captivating game assets such as buildings, various environment decorations, and icons. The following events I was involved in was Fantasy, Apocalypse, WWE, Jolly Farm, and Mythology.
I’ve also had an interest in PC gaming for awhile. The last game I really enjoyed was Left 4 Dead parts 1 and 2. I’m also a fan and follower of the Blizzard lore and games since the first Starcraft.
Besides games, I enjoy creating with my hands such as knitting, crochet and the latest thing I got myself into is sewing. I’m also an avid cyclist who enjoys casual, commute and for fitness (climbing!).
