Ferris Media Festival Presenter

Senior art coordinator currently at Pocket Gems. I've been in the game industry for 7 years. The games I've worked on include Farmville, War Dragons, Hidden Agendas: The Lionheart Mystery, Mafia Wars, GoPets, Campus Life, Paradise Cove, Night at the Museum, Secret Passages, and Book of Secrets. In addition to being an artist, I have also had the chance to manage Farmville's art team as a producer using the agile/scrum method. During that time I helped save the company over 400 man hours and received an award for practices I put into place that would carry over into the rest of the company. I later was sent to India to train our outsource team there as the acting art director. Currently I work at Pocket Gems as an Senior Art Coordinator, moving between projects as people need me to keep them on track and starting up new game teams. Currently on an unannounced project managing a team of artists, designers and programmers.
