game dev

Hey, I'm Josh! I'm a Los Angeles-based independent game developer and writer! I'm also 50% of Brainloaf Studio. When I was a little kid, I got seriously hooked on video games and programming, and I haven't been able to put down my keyboard ever since. Whether it's through game design, coding, or writing, expressing myself through the medium of games is my whole-hearted passion!

Psst... I also voice act.

about me

Like many others, my love for digital media flourished when I was a kid. The interactivity of video games utterly entranced me, and 10-year-old me consumed Xbox Live Arcade and Flash games like there was no tomorrow. Before long, I was pumping out crude platformers and puzzlers all by myself. Though the quality of what I was creating then was, uh, questionable to say the least, those creative beginnings mean a lot to me.It's through digital storytelling that I also discovered a love for voice acting - I've found that I love working with my voice to give characters their own unique flair. Over the years I've had a blast bringing lots of odd and interesting characters to life, and like game development, voice acting is a skill I hope to continue honing into the far, far future.Though a decade has passed since my creative beginnings, I still feel the same sparks of excitment today. I adore game design and technical problem solving, love a good story, and have a blast bringing characters to life both through writing and acting. I genuinely hope that the projects I design and take part in inspire creativity just as the media of the past inspired me.
