about

personal picture of celine posing with a black dog

I am a writer, narrative designer and independent game developer, with experience in both digital and analogue games. Past projects have included interactive fiction, point-and-click adventures, escape rooms and tabletop RPGs.

I am a student of Game Design and Development, where in addition to making games, I produce academic work that touches on cross-media storytelling, toxicity and pro-social behaviour in online multiplayer games, and narratology.

I am a board member for DMG, a space for queer and gender-marginalized folks making games, a moderator for the Wholesome Games Discord channel, and organizer with the Hot Gamer Collective, a streamer collective dedicated to raising funds and awareness for a variety of causes such as reproductive rights, trans rights and COVID relief.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading sci-fi and fantasy novels, pampering my three cats, playing games with friends, and working out. I’m passionate about gender, disability justice, and Indigenous rights, to name a few, and love to put my time and skills toward supporting causes I care about.
