Amazon Narrative design

Starting in January of 2017, I began working as a Narrative Designer on a currently confidential project at Amazon.

Over the course of the project, I’ve used core, fundamental Narrative and Game Design principles to explore and develop a currently unannounced project within Amazon.

While on the project, I was promoted to Lead Narrative Designer in June 2018. This came with new responsibilities!

I was tasked with owning, to completion, both preproduction and production narrative design work. This spanned all different disciplines of this large unannounced Amazon project, owning key internal and external collaborations.

I’ve served in about a thousand different capacities while on the team: Design Technologist, Prototyper, UX Researcher, UX Architect, Game Designer, Product Manager, Content Producer, Graphic Designer, Copywriter, Interaction Designer… But always, the core of my work has been in Story-Focused Narrative Design, and advocating for those principles using my strong technical skillset.
