Laid off and open to work

Imploring the universe not to let my cats starve

· Game Development

TL;DR: the layoff monster got me, ahhh! 👾 I'm a 17-year veteran of the games industry open to GAME WRITING, NARRATIVE DESIGN, and CREATIVE DIRECTION roles, and I can start ASAP!

Crappy news: My position as head of the narrative department at A Thinking Ape was eliminated on Monday, so, sadly, I've been laid off. (Shoutout to my amazing direct reports who made my time there so joyful and fulfilling 💖)

But, I'm choosing to see this as the start of a new adventure! Onward!

If you're looking for...

  • ...character-driven, compelling, and captivating dialogue that keeps players engaged over single sessions and story arcs alike...
  • ...technically-savvy narrative and quest/mission design in Unreal and Unity that makes full use of Blueprints, YarnSpinner, ink, etc. to program interesting interactivity...
  • ...someone who can speak the language of engineers to help build better storytelling tools for your narrative designers...
  • ...UX-driven creative direction that leverages the full gamut of art, design, audio, mocap, VO, localization, marketing, and community management to tell cohesive stories in-game and out...
  • ...radically candid people management and project leadership that prioritizes achievable scope and profitability...
  • ...a lifelong wide-ranging gamer with sick Beat Saber skills and sweet Zelda tattoos...

...then you need to hire me! Quickly! Before someone else scoops me up!
