Game Design Hero 2020
Game Dev Heroes is an annual awards event designed to bring recognition to the work of individuals across the games industry, especially those working in areas or roles that don’t typically get much attention. Nominations are almost entirely from peers and colleagues, and the shortlists are created based solely on the merit of these nominations.
I was the winner for the gamedev heroes award 2020 for the category of design. Floored and humbled to be on the shortlist with wonderful game developers from around the globe.

Design and Pitch Challenge Champion 2022
You have great ideas for how to make the world a better place. The Design & Pitch Challenges in STEM are your chance to start turning those ideas into a reality.
In these Challenges, you will need to think like an entrepreneur as you create real solutions to messy STEM problems. You will need to use your knowledge and expertise in creative ways to invent new products that meet customers’ needs. You will need to be able to recognize when you need to learn something new about STEM, your customers, or the situation, and be willing to work to learn it.
But entrepreneurship is not just about building great solutions. At the end of each Challenge, you will need to convince a panel of judges that your solution is worth funding in a process called “making a pitch.” Be clear and be convincing. The world needs your ideas. It was an owner to be the Design and Pitch champion for 2022, wish all the best for the students.
