“I am very enthusiastic about our industry. I love being able to contribute to the vast and ever growing world of games and visual media, whether that is through art or through management and research skills.
I have always wanted to be able to work on projects that explore the possibilities of our industry and tell the stories I believe in, through the art that I love. As an indie game developer at SkogsArt Studio, I feel that I can make this wish a reality.
I believe our industry has the potential to bring about strong emotions and inspire new ideas or visions through our work. It would be a shame not to utilize this to the fullest.”
