I'm the Diagram Architect at Machinations. Before joining I did about 3 years of QA, which meant testing games ranging from AAA titles such as FIFA, Battlefield, or Mass Effect Andromeda as well as indie titles like Unravel 2, Fe, or Disco Elysium.

You can see me in our webinars and on the Machinations YouTube channel where we try to teach people how to use Machinations to balance their games.
