About Me





I am an 19-year-old college junior, sci-fi enthusiast, and avid gamer. Having built my first computer at 10 years old (which I still use today), I have an passionate love for computers and new technology such as virtual and augmented reality, and enjoy learning about network security and white hat hacking. When I'm not making a website or developing a video game, I love writing calligraphy, drawing, playing games like TEKKEN 7 and Final Fantasy, and reading fantasy/sci-fi!

My Work



XING: The Land Beyond

An atmospheric first-person puzzle-adventure game set in the afterlife for the PC, PS4 and Virtual Reality. One of the first full-length VR titles with 6+ hours of story, XING came out September 2017 for PC and all PC VR headsets, and Februrary 2019 for PS4 and PSVR.


I worked on XING during high school over the summer of 2016 and in spring/summer of 2017. In addition to providing in-depth bug analysis and feedback, I worked on the in-game menu, puzzle design of different game levels, and core VR features such as teleportation.

Banana Monkeys


A stylish and whimsical yet challenging puzzle game about traversing a monkey on trees.

I created Banana Monkeys in a team of 4 in 36 hours at LAHacks 2018. I was in charge of puzzle design and created 20 unique puzzles for the game that increased in complexity through combination of introduced mechanics. In addition to jumping from tree to tree, there were mechanics such as pitfalls, birds that carried the monkey over obstacles, and snakes. I also contributed to the programming and 3D modeling.
