The Full Story

I am first and foremost a Video Game Aficionado. Since young, I have been passionate about games and was hungry to know more about them. So much so that I decided I wanted to learn how to make them.

Nowadays I'm a Game Design Student at Breda University of Applied Sciences.

Mainly working in student projects, I have led and participated in dev. teams, big and small,

from Mobile to a  Custom Engine, creating a variety of experiences with them.

This led me to a passion, not only in playing games but in making games.

I have focused on Design for the past years and developed a strong passion for designing engaging experiences with a focus on understanding Players' behaviors.
