I've partnered with a cross-functional team of producers, designers, artists and engineers to prototype, implement, and iterate on game features for the SkateX title at Block Tackle Inc. My full range of game development skills have been utilized on the project such as: translating the vision into a Game Design Document which clearly and concisely communicates ideas to the rest of the team; designing Skatepark Levels and building them in Unity; creating UI/UX prototypes for various game scenes; playtesting builds and generating bug lists for quality assurance; and more!
