Hello! My name is Josh.
I am a tech savvy individual who has been studying the art of game design all my life.
I recently completed my Bachelors of Science at Champlain College.
My experience includes a variety of roles in production: from audio, to levels, animation state machines, to QA and management.
In practice I am a bit of a Generalist Designer, specializing in scripting, UX research, systems design, and the implementation of game features.
I have a passion for building cinematic and competitive moments in games.
My goal is to work with game development full-time at a game studio.
Below you will find links to my most recent work.
