I'm currently working with En Masse Entertainment in Seattle, Washington, building the world of Kritika Online and the next generation of great action MMORPGs.
I'm also a scriptwriter for Amplitude Studios' Endless Space 2, a sci-fi 4X game whose writing was recently lauded by PC World as "a cut above [the rest]."
My short stories have appeared in top magazines like Cicada and the Hugo-nominated Beneath Ceaseless Skies. You can peruse them here.
Airy Nothings is the debut project of Turtlemouse Productions, a little indie studio I founded with my friend Farah Rishi in Septmenber 2016. We create high-quality, well-written romance games for women with an eye toward diversity and inclusion.
Ari is a twentysomething college dropout who wants nothing more than to fade into the background of life—until she finds a mysterious pen that seems to grant her strange new powers of imagination. She uses it to get accepted to the exclusive Blackwell Writers Workshop, where she decides to take a leap of faith and pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a writer.
Follow Ari as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery, romance, and full-blown imposter syndrome at an isolated summer camp, featuring a diverse and eccentric cast of love interests and seven branching storylines. Airy Nothings is a funny, emotional, contemplative look at the value of love, art, and dreams when all your efforts and heartaches over the years seem to have added up to... nothing.
Airy Nothings is being developed for PC.

The Circle of Shan (working title) is what happens when all the things I loved in my adolescence—epic fantasy, superheroes, and Chinese mythology—get mashed up into one confusing jumble of joy.
It's Ender's Game meets Avatar: The Last Airbender in a world filled with political intrigue, clashes of wit, and unexpected friendships.
Detailed description to come. :)
