The workhouse is my small live/work space on the rolling plains of west Texas where I'm teaching myself to make games. Before moving here I worked in the advertising industry with some of the top agencies and brands in the country. Along with game development I do take on freelance work and if you have a project that could be a good fit, please give a holler. Thanks for looking.
