What is the weirdest job you've ever held?

I was a Blockbuster employee that was employed for about 6 months without being fired or working a single hour; but I still got free movie rentals until someone figured out I was still technically hired.

What is your favorite all-time game?

Chrono Trigger (originally on SNES).

What games are you playing right now?

Warframe, World of Tanks, Heroes of the Storm, Marvel Future Fight, Elite: Dangerous, and For Honor.

What motivated you to begin working in the game industry?

I was raised on video games and movies, and promised myself I'd work in the entertainment industry after playing Warcraft 2 (the first game I ever played on a CD-ROM drive!)

What inspires you?

I find that interesting people and characters give me the most inspiration. I always look for the people and characters who catch me "off-guard" and surprise me. Because of that, I look for ways to keep audiences interested and on their toes, too!

What is your proudest achievement?

I was invited to graduate school without having to apply, and earned a Masters degree.

What piques your curiosity?

I find script writing and voice acting to be interesting, nuanced, and full of opportunities to do new and interesting things. It's always exciting to see what comes next!

What is your hidden talent?

I am actually an incredibly skilled knife fighter. I have trained for years in Filipino Kali.

What is the best thing about working at Schell Games?

The people are supportive, friendly, and incredibly talented. I'm excited to see such awesome colleagues every day!

What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?

Most people have no idea that I'm an introvert. Even though I love being around people and it "recharges" me, my favorite time is when I can focus on my own work and space.

How long have you worked at Schell Games?

I started working for Schell Games in January of 2017.
