I want to use my skill set to develop unique and fun games/experiences, and hopefully help the industry be more healthy for the workers!

I worked with Editorial Illustration for many years but something that always bothered me was that the final products of my work represented medias that I didn't consume or didn't believe in. Shortly after that, I started learning game development by myself and released a couple of very simple games - the public reaction was completely different from anything I did before, and that's what motivated me to move across the world to attend a game dev school in Sweden, where I study now!
