What I do all day at work?
I design and maintain puzzles and props for fun Escape Rooms!
I am heavily inspired by pop culture and the insane combined fantasy imagination of me and my friends who run an online ttrpg gaming community, The Purple Academy. I am one of their artist, producing Illustrations for various Dungeons and Dragons campaigns and adapting our main campaign into a web comic!
I also use all the skills I learned in Mouse Design League to help build and fix fun puzzles with Nerd Escape Room! Our escape rooms are packed with Arduino's and Raspberry Pi's galore which (when paired inside fun crafty props and secret rooms) provide hours of fun for players as they solve our hands-on mystery themed puzzle rooms!
