Some of the games I've worked on in the past.
I joined Microsoft as a Project Manager III, brought in to take over the content team on the Xbox Avatars project. I worked directly with artists, animators and technical artists, engineers and designers to create an optimized asset pipeline, assess and triage the backlog and create a working method to allow us to predict and manage the necessary assets and tools in order to prepare the product for it’s successful launch in October 2018.
State of Decay 2
I was brought onto the team at Undead Labs on a short-term contract to assist the Production Team as a Consulting Associate Producer to assist with preparing State of Decay 2 for launch. In that role I created productivity analysis tools, worked closely with QA to develop planning tools and optimize workflow, and led strike teams to help ensure the smooth launch of the studio's next big title in early 2018.
Beyond Blue is a game about using groundbreaking technologies to explore the ocean in more meaningful ways than have ever been attempted, and is being developed using the same inclusive development methodology as Never Alone <Kisima Ingitchuna>, partnering with world-class oceanographers and explorers.
I was fortunate enough to be part of this team as Producer through much of the game's pre-production process.
Never Alone <Kisima Ingitchuna>
I served as Producer on Never Alone <Kisima Ingitchuna> from early prototypes through its initial launch in November 2014 on Steam for Windows and Mac, PS4 and Xbox One, with later releases on Steam for Linux, PS3, Wii U and Nvidia Shield, as well as a re-designed version (Never Alone: Ki Edition) on iOS and Android devices.
