Minimal Move
my Game Designer's portfolio


I’m a Game Designer
with an intense focus on
Controls, Cameras and UX.


I’m only satisfied when the game 'feels' amazing.

I’m always searching for the intersection of tech, art and psychology.

I’m also known for crazy prototyping skills in Unity, and for guiding programmers to do amazing things.
