Creator/Designer/Artist | Two Scoop GamesNovember 2013 – Present
Game development allows me combine my passion for art and technology to create games for all to enjoy. Since we met at a local programming meetup in Nov 2013, Eric Lathrop and I have been working on making our own games. We have currently completed 3 full releases on online app stores, and 14 game prototypes.

In 2015 I co-founded a 501-(c)(3) non-profit organization called Louisville Makes Games, Inc. The goal of LMG is to provide educational courses and promote game development careers in the city of Louisville, KY. In February 2016, we had the grand opening for Warp Zone Louisville, the first and only game development-centric co-working space in Lousiville (and Kentucky!). We run meetups, classes, and events out of Warp Zone as well as providing the ammenities of a co-working space on Main Street in downtown Louisville.
Co - Founder / Organizer / Host | Lousville Game Creator's MeetupFebruary 2014 – Present
The independent game developer community in Louisville is a huge passion of mine. The Lousville Game Creator's Meetup (formerly Game Dev Lou) is a twice-monthly meetup and support group for local game developers. I have facilitated nearly every meeting, and to date I have helped to organize 3-4 game jam events per year.
In 2017 I had a major role in the development and teaching of a free 6-week summer program at Warp Zone Louisville to give kids a taste of the many disciplines of game development including; coding, story, art & animation, music & sound, and game design. In 2014 I taught a monthly game development workshop at Velocity Indiana for youth ages 11-18 as part of their code education program.
