thatgamecompany Technical Game Designer
I learned from your website that you are seeking a Technical Game Designer. As a self taught programmer who has been working in games for over 5 years, I am eager to continue my personal and professional growth with an organization as creative and forward-thinking as thatgamecompany. This position interests me greatly as it offers me the opportunity to fulfil my career goals and bring high-quality games to connect and enrich people's lives.
I have a B.F.A. in painting from Western Kentucky University. With an arts background, I’m able to offer a perspective that balances aesthetics with logic. Working with a variety of collaborators under the name Bearwarp, I have focused on programming, sound design and finding ways to properly shape the experience and concept together. I have been fortunate to show at and attend videogame festivals such as Super MAGfest in Washington DC, AMAZE. in Johannesburg, Terminus Conference and Festival in Atlanta, and Whaaat!? in Boulder. I have also been showing games in art spaces such as RedLine Contemporary Art Center and Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, and I am currently creating two games for Meow Wolf opening up in Denver. Through these experiences I have seen how to create projects that interest a wide range of people.
I have been involved in organizing pop-up videogame events as part of the ongoing Dizzy Spell series, which shows a wide variety of games with innovative content and mechanics. I am always willing and eager to expand my knowledge of new technologies, art forms, and ways to creatively play games. Lastly, with a natural inclination for organization and a thorough understanding of critique and collaboration, I know I could excel as a Technical Game Designer. I have the tools and the will to upkeep with regular order, communication and thoughtful game design. In addition, my passion, experience, and education of the arts will serve me well in this role. I would love the opportunity to discuss my qualifications in an interview at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your consideration.
