Service Description

I can provide insights and content writings in regards to social and mobile media with a particular flair in games. I have written content for Inside Network, Azubu, and Gamezebo for several years; focusing on everything from game design and game reviews to news reports. Additionally, content can be provided quickly and efficiently with a high emphasis on quality. I have also composed over 2,500 articles at an average length of 800+ words.

Beyond writing, I can also offer expertise in game design, story writing, and games production (having worked as a lead producer and designer for startup companies). In addition to analyzing games, I have also spent the last several years instructing in game design and production and hold a Master's in interactive entertainment.
