    I have spent the last 10+ years working in the independent game development community, including development teams between Denver, Orlando, and across the world. My passion for creating an empowering collaborative, hard-working environment is my core; this stems from my love of growing community and engagement inside cross-development teams. 
     Before working with the independent community in Central Florida, I had spent 11 years in the video game tournament industry. Through my early years of playing hours of games, I had decided to play them competitively. In the early 2000s, I was ranked in the Top 50 of Call Of Duty, America's Army, and Splinter Cell. By the age of 21, I was also an admin of two popular game clans, Die with Honor and Geezer Gaming, and now TickleNation with which I'm still an active admin member.  After retiring from competitive play, I transitioned to running tournaments instead. This led me to work across the country with many conventions, including Pensacon, Megacon, Denver Comic Con, etc... I then transitioned into independent development where I was the Founder and Lead Producer at Continuum Studio, Board Member at Indienomicon, Operations Manager at Orlando Game Space. 
     I love everything about games. They are my lifeblood. If they didn't exist, I don't know where my life would be; that is how much impact they are on my career and passion in life. I enjoy meeting new people and learning from others. My career has been a rocky one, but I wouldn't change a single piece. It has allowed me to carve a unique path in my career and each day provides a new one. Helping impact others will always be something I value.
