My game writing portfolio is now a PDF for reading, available on demand.

For game design I have 7 years of studio experience (from entry to lead) and 2 years independent (all roles). I believe in talking about experiences rather than trying to shoe-horn the less tangible design decisions into a website; as I grew in seniority my work was increasingly general and behind-the-scenes. But here are a few things you could read:
