Other things about me

International Ambassador

I attended GDC (Game Developer Conference) 2017 as an International Ambassador! Our mission is to help foster game development communities in areas with little support for game development. Learn more here.

Writing

Check out my blog here and read about what I have to say about my projects and the struggles I face in AR/VR development.

I used to write bi-weekly articles for Electronic Gaming Federation that explore ways to quantify Hearthstone cards and judge its effectiveness against one another.


Graphic Design

I really enjoy using Adobe Illustrator, especially when I get money for doing so. You can view some of work through my Bēhance.

Resident Advisor

I overlook a bunch of students and help build a positive environment by guiding them towards appropriate resources (such as those for mental health concerns).

Teaching Assistant

I answer questions and guide students through classes and assignments. Classes I TA for include: Data Structures & Algorithms II and Game Design and Development I.
