Hi I'm Maddie 

About

Driven by an appetite for knowledge and understanding, I love to learn, research, and improve every chance I get. Working with many individuals, having a clear understanding of pipeline and workflow. Helping teams navigate ambiguity through organization and interdisciplinary communication. Dedicated and confident in my craft, having experience in both technical art and design. I'm passionate about research and how it can influence design choices in the course of development.

Video games hold a special place in my heart, the stories and experiences are my passion, and it feels amazing to be pursuing my dream. Even in my free time, I pressure creative and intellectually challenging experiences. I love games that test my problem-solving skills and immerse me in their beautiful worlds.
