• Welcome! I'm a Berlin-based writer with fifteen years of experience in video game storytelling. I specialize in character-driven stories that draw inspiration from historical events, people, and cultures (even when they're set in magical lands or galaxies far, far away.)

  • About Me

    Writer

    I am a versatile writer with a specialty in writing for interactive narratives, including choice-based branching games.

    In addition to work-for-hire in a number of genres (Sci-fi, Fantasy, Historical Murder Mystery), I have a number of creator-owned projects in various stages of development. I'm currently Head of Writing at Wooga.

    Historical Researcher

    I have a Master's degree from the University of Chicago, where I wrote my thesis on the educational approach of ninth-century theologian and philosopher Johannes Scotus Eriugena.

    Research is one of the significant skills I bring to my writing work, and I am available for hire as a historical consultant.

    Speaker & Mentor

    Mentoring other writers and teaching the writing craft is a passion of mine.

    I've led multiple writing teams and helped over a dozen writers develop their craft through personal one-on-one feedback sessions. In addition, I've led writing workshops for small groups and delivered talks at game conferences around the world.
