About Velvety Couch Games:
I have been passionate about game development since the early 1990s. From my first adventure game created in HyperCard to mods made for Quake and Half-life, my childhood was full of game designs and creations. After releasing numerous level packs for games like Quake, I worked on the award winning Half-life mod Firearms that was included in Valve's Counter-Strike retail package. These days I'm working as a full time game developer, and in my spare time I continue to create indie games from my studio Velvety Couch Games (such as the puzzle game OddBalls and my new project Elemancy).

I am also a passionate supporter of growing and improving the game development community. To that end I've been one of the co-organizers of the local Victoria IGDA game developer group, and also help with other technology groups in Victoria, BC. We host events for aspiring and experienced game developers alike. I believe that game design, the environment we create games in, and the industry in general still have a lot of room to grow and improve. Community building is an important part of helping games reach their full potential and it's also a great way to share and learn from each other.
