The Job

Senior Art Lead

2013 - 2014

I was recruited by WildTangent to develop original mobile IP (both MSRP and F2P) and to help mold the production pipeline of a new mobile game studio. I exercised several areas of my expertise (game design, animation, UI/UX) and pitched visual concepts for multiple prototypes my very first week on the job. Key among these was Word Science, a Starbucks/iTunes Pick of the Week.
