🔻 What are you passionate about within game development?
The thing I love so much about game dev is that you get to work with all these creative disciplines spanning across a wide spectrum of skills. From 2D, 3D, tech design, audio, concept art, and many more...
It is when working to bring all of these brilliant people together in creating something that feels coherent and greater than the sum of its parts that games start to feel really magical.
🔻 What's your all-time favorite game (and why)?
I think it would have to be Baldur’s Gate II. It was one of the first epic story experiences I had in gaming as a kid, and the memories of that game still linger with me more than 20 years after playing it.
🔻 What's your favorite pastime?
I am a big foodie and won’t hesitate to cross borders in chase of a good meal. Besides stuffing myself, I also really enjoy miniature painting.
