God of War Ragnarok – I am a Senior Staff Technical Combat Designer on God of War Ragnarok.


Just Cause 4 – Danger Rising (2019) – I was the Lead Designer and Product Owner for Just Cause 4’s third Downloadable Content (DLC) called “Danger Rising.” I designed and implemented the new hoverboard traversal mechanic, new enemy types that use the franchise’s signature grappling hook, and all the new weapons. I helped to guide and direct the rest of the DLC content.


Just Cause 4 (2018) – I worked as a Senior Game Designer on Just Cause 4, with my focus being on all things Combat and AI. I also created the procedural “Random Encounter” system and scripted all of the encounters it could spawn. I made a few of the more notable easter eggs in it as well.  Get more info on the game here.
