Game/Level Designer

About Me

Experienced in designing levels and mechanics for games of various genres with good technical knowledge of Unreal Engine 4.

I think of Level Design as the place where all parts of game development come together, so in order to further my level design skills and understanding of other departments, I have spent some time learning and practicing other aspects of development, such as 3D modelling, set dressing, lighting, audio, UI/UX design and more.

Outside of game development, I like photography, reading books and manga, and munching on some chips while watching TV shows and movies. I occasionally go snowboarding, but I could also sit down and play D&D for an entire day. I enjoy practicing my amateur DJ skills, though not everyone in the audience might approve.

Some of my favourite games in alphabetic order are:

  • Age of Mythology
  • Borderlands 2
  • Dark Souls
  • God of War
  • Grand Theft Auto IV
  • League of Legends
  • The Witness
  • Titanfall 2
  • Warcraft III
