Accomplishments


  • Lead responsibility for all in game graphics creation and delivery for 10 years at Planet Bingo. Responsibilities included management of other team members workload and project labor division, game design, logo design, UI design, character design, sound design, exportation, and performance optimization. 

  • Assisted in the design and implementation of the in-house graphics delivery pipeline. This included working with developers in devising a layer naming system in Photoshop that would convey vital display information about sprite objects in OpenGL via an .xml script. Documentation and relaying the process to other members of the team were additional responsibilities in this work. 

  • As one of the very first few employees of Planet Bingo, I played a vital role in helping the company grow from a domestic installation of 2 locations at the start of my employment to over 100, which included foreign markets. I saw my contribution as integral to the growth of the business and brought as many talents I could to help drive sales and connect with customers via my role as sole artist in the early years.
