All creative work requires an understanding and appreciation of technical challenges. These challenges are to be seen as opportunities to innovate and expand creativity. With every title I have worn, I have learned a new methodology for delivering an interactive product. I like to work hard and tell everyone it was easy.

We create and distribute marketing materials for 16 partners and 8 affiliate advertisers.
Production Artist 05.2015 – 10.2015
My time at Gamesys gaming was a fun and unique experience. The headquarters for the company is located in London, which meant communication was done daily over video calls and instant messaging. The amazing artists I worked with taught me a lot of new digital art methodologies that I wouldn’t have learned in a traditional design position.

This position was my introduction to affiliate marketing practices.

Genesis Gaming was a incredible work environment, Everyday I had the opportunity to work with the most talented group of artists I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
In the two years I was there I went from basic production work such as slicing up art for the engineers to defining UI standards and working closely with the Marketing team in London. The quality and precision required to successfully launch an international money based slot game taught me more than I could have ever hoped.
