Hi, I'm Jack. (he/him)

I'm a narrative designer, editor, and fanboy obsessed with basically any ship you throw at me.

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I'm a huge Warriors, Niners, and Giants fan, eager eater of Asian fusion cuisine, and a super nerdy, dorky, and fun-loving enjoyer of queer everything.

For 6+ years, I've explored a variety of storytelling formats, such as journalism, interactive visual novels, live news broadcasts, localization editing, and, of course, (fan)fiction.

As someone fascinated with words and communication methods, I design stories, characters, and worlds based on how I think, speak, and interact, which allows me to highlight the good, the bad, and especially the ugly of interpersonal communication. I love connecting with people and focusing on establishing real relationships, no matter how rough the waters get.

I aim to build fantastic video game narratives that grab players by the heart, crush them with feels, and subsequently place a gentle bandage over the wound with a perfectly timed joke — just as my favorite games have done to me.

Drawing inspiration from my experiences as a queer Filipino-American, I intend to create painful, funny, and heartfelt games that still feel real and relatable at their core. With my experience in journalism and editorial, I aim to do the same at any publishing company that I have the opportunity to work with.

Thanks for stopping by!
