A New Year

I’m just going to go ahead and say it – 2015 was one helluva year. From voice-acting for TV commercials to working with one of the biggest print media companies in the country, my first European convention experiences at GDCE and Gamescom to seeing my name associated with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, it’s been a year of exciting personal milestones.

There’s been a lot of personal reflection in the last few days as I’ve finally had a few moments to slow down, and it’s dawned on me how lucky I am.  I’m genuinely SO thankful for how much support I’ve received this year, and in the lead up to it.   I’ve had the pleasure of working with some phenomenal talent, and I’m so very flattered to have been entrusted with exploring their creative ideas.  Thank you.
