Community Manager
International Recruiter

Howest - Digital Arts and Entertainment

I helped to represent student interests and organize events for the student community. One of my main focus' was to keep an eye on our International students (as I was one once) and make sure they feel a bit more at home. I took care of our Twitter, made posts on our website as well as shared them on our Facebook page as well. The other main focus was going to high schools/school events in other countries to promote our curriculum.

Level Prepper

Conatus Creative

Helping put together levels for Rivercity Ransom: Underground. I contacted the team again to try and help out where I can (after work project ;) ) and was put on helping to get the levels prepped and ready to be played.

This isn't so much a design job as the art is made, I just have to get it into the game and make it playable (all assets are based upon the final level artwork by the Lead Artist.

Internship for Conatus Creative working on Rivercity Ransom: Underground. My main focus was on building/fixing tools to help take strain off the coders and try to put more power in the hands of the artists. I worked mainly in WPF but also jumped into the game code base a few times to help out.
