Hi. I'm Mike.
I like to make things that bring happiness and deeper meaning to people's lives. Above all, I believe in building things that are fun, quirky, and thought-inspiring. These days, that mostly means making weird indie games and building iOS apps for clients.
I firmly believe the best way to get anything done is through intense collaboration with a small group of passionate and creative people. I love meeting new people to jam with, so feel free to get in touch for any reason.
A few things I've madeThis is a small selection of my projects. I have a complete list if you'd like to see more.
