About

I am a graduate of the Art Institute of San Antonio, where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Game Art and Design. I provided IT support for my school as a student-worker.
While I was pursuing my studies, I became very active in the San Antonio Gaming Community, which encouraged the development of my small studio named "No Hope Studios." With other like-minded friends, we have been swamped both developing our game and presenting at conventions such as PAX SOUTH, San Japan, and many others.
