What inspired you to start making games?
The game LA Noire convinced me to go to school to learn to make the art for games. When I played this game I was in love with the fact that every store you drove by had a fully realized store front with lots of little trinkets arranged in each. Each one was so lovingly made, but it wasn’t terribly likely that you’d ever actually stop and look at each one. I decided that I wanted to do that—be the person that designed beautiful sets that would make the
player feel like they stumbled upon a hidden world.
