Pirates and Cyberpunk Recently, I've been making some videogames, including art assets and coding.

Under our made up company name 'bullet trampoline', we have created a pirate ship game. The object is to RAM! other ships and destroy them, collect loot, and upgrade the vessel.

Right now we have a playtest version that allows RAM! and destruction. The mouse moves the player, and you double-click to RAM! other ships. You can play it here,

An early build of the game.








If you like platformers instead, here's a personal project of mine with 3 levels. The character animation and sprites are all created by myself and I'm shooting for a cyberpunk feel.

Hold shift to run.Double tap a direction to dash. Space bar jumps. Hitting it again while in the air double-jumps. 
Can you collect all the orange boxes and complete the 3 levels?

The Statistics Monster -- OUT NOW!

The Statistics Monster: Learning about the Medianis available now for purchase!

When Erica, Ben, and Patrice call Abutoes the monster statistician for help with cleaning up their toys, they did not expect silly Abutoes to eat the toys! The clever girl Erica and her trusty friends must now learn the secret to the ‘median’ to save their toys from Abutoes and his bottomless belly. If they don’t learn the secret, they’ll lose their toys forever. Can you help them unlock the secret to the ‘median’?




The Statistics Monster book series teaches young children (ages 7-9+) about the concepts and practicality of statistics through approachable, simple, and often humorous stories about the crafty girl Erica, Petite Patrice the cat, Brave Ben the dog, and Abutoes the monster statistician. The series aims to make statistics more approachable and less monstrous.

More coming soon!
