Nexus is a 3rd-person action-adventure game created by a team of 19 at the Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy. On Nexus I served a variety of roles, but in terms of production, I served as an Associate Producer on the team.

Under Dog

Cerberus, the gatekeeper and master of Tartarus, has decided to retire after many years of service to Hades. Your goal is to impress Cerberus by herding and sorting three types of souls to their final resting place. For Under Dog, I served primarily as the project manager, scheduling tasks and leading the team of 5 towards completing a two week prototype in Unity. I worked with a fellow producer to help design the game and make key decisions in order to complete the prototype which earned high praise for its simple effective gameplay and storytelling.
