Unannounced Mobile RPG
(Code name: Jump Game)

Narrative Designer

Details: A mobile RPG with a unique world that makes use of otherworldly weapons, abilities, and characters.


Responsibilities: I worked off pre-determined general concepts and created an entire game world, its characters, and all the lore that went along with them. I also advised on art direction, cutscenes, general quest outlines, in-game enemies and environments, game progression, and special abilities and items. 



Choose Your Own Adventure

Unannounced Couch Co-Op
(Code name: Project Saturn)

Studio: The Iterative Collective

Responsibilities: Develop character personalities, write dialogue, design and script cutscenes, write barks, choose environments, and craft the overall story 


Personal Projects

For this title, I created a narrative concept based on mechanics, characters, and available assets that were predetermined by my team. I also wrote all the interactive in-game text as well as the written story elements players encounter as they progress through the levels. I addtionally provided VO for cutscenes. 

In-Game Help File

I wrote this for the game Achaea, Dreams of Divine Lands based on defined game lore. It became a help file for an in-game organization, demonstrating my ability to compile and condense lore into digestible outline for quick player reference. 

In-Game Library Book

This is a piece I wrote based on existing lore about a Goddess within the game Achaea. It has since been added to in-game libraries to be accessed by other players within the game, demonstrating my ability to build upon a game's lore and expand it into deeper world building, including character details, backstory, and in-universe motivations.

Game Jams

As the narrative designer of this project, I created reference documents with area and character lore, including backstories for each of the NPCs, as well as crafted the dialogue for all game progression and cutscenes. I worked closely with my team to ensure that each step of the process--from how the characters and environment looked to sound design--worked together to communicate this cohesive narrative. 


Me & I features my writing and voice acting. I shaped the narrative direction of the entire project, from the story told to character design to the mechanics that helped communicate the characters’ journeys. I also designed levels and provided the voice for the Mom character. 


I worked as narrative designer with a fantastic team to complete Cell Shocked in only a week. I crafted the character personalities and backstories, wrote the cutscene dialogue, and informed my team's decisions about character design and environment choices in keeping with the narrative I crafted for our game. 

Professional Development

Space Race Game

I transformed a simple childhood favorite into an action-packed space race where players compete to go down in history, all while remaining within the parameters of the original gameplay.

Playable Alien Race

I created an overview for an original playable race based on a prompt for a sci-fi strategy game set in what remains of a once great and sprawling galactic empire. 

Character Creation, Plot Overview, and Story Structure

I created an original character, plot, and story structure for a medieval merchant simulator while working within assigned constraints. 

Character Backstory

I created an original character backstory based on a provided image, taking into account the character's predetermined setting and appearance.

Opening Cutscene

I wrote this opening cutscene for a game writing class at Gotham Writers. It is for a hypothetical game involving a character and plot I created.

Character Barks

I communicate the attitude of an original character through these short quips, including the way her tone and extrinsic goals change after a turning point in the game.
