I hope to create multiplayer games enjoyed by many and toy figurines loved by many.

When I was 5, my family got a personal computer and that changed everything.. I would always be playing with mspaint and flash; drawing and making animation shorts of Pokémon or anime characters. Once in a while, I would create my own original characters and designs. During my early teenage years, I got really into competitive sports. My love for them inspired me to make my own games, specifically multiplayer, so I taught myself programming and have been making games mostly by myself since then.
