I was contracted as a game user researcher with the indie studio That’s Not A Game. I led research and playtesting for a two-player mobile game that sparks deep conversations between friends, Wild Honesty.
I was the creative director and a designer, writer, and developer for this game that combined turn-based combat and narrative gameplay to explore the role of hope in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges.
“A smart platform that allows caregivers to transform spaces through light, color, sounds, and visuals, turning any environment into a place where older adults living with dementia can focus, engage, and relax.”
I was a designer and usability researcher on this MFA thesis project by Gabriela Gomes.
“A fun game for friends that leads to deep conversations.”
I contributed as a consultant on design and research-based positive interventions for this two-player mobile game in 2017-2018.
I was an author on ‘Butterfly Lovers: Design rationale of a cooperative virtual reality game for promoting compassion in multigenerational families.’ This article is about a collaborative VR game in development at USC’s Creative Media & Behavioral Health Center. I provided content for the literature review, presenting relevant psychological scholarship about games, virtual reality, well-being, resilience, and compassion.
