Graduated 2018 with a degree in Game Design, currently employed as an Associate Designer at Insomniac Games in Burbank, CA

What do you do in your current job?

When I started as an Associate Designer in June, it didn’t feel much different from being an intern. In fact, it almost felt like I never left. However, as the weeks went by and I became more familiar with the development tools, I was given more responsibility and slowly I began to feel less like an intern and more like a real designer at the studio. Now, I’m in charge of a large portion of the open world content for our “City That Never Sleeps” DLC and having all of that responsibility not only leaves any feelings of still being an intern behind, but it also makes me feel like I’m making a real impact on the game that I can call my own. I’m excited that I’m already taking some big steps forward and can’t wait to see how players react to the content I’m currently creating.
