Hi. I’m Paul. You probably know me as the founder and head boy of Oh, a Rock! Studios, creator of such fine visual novelettes as My Nigerian Prince and Francy Droo, or perhaps from my second-place showing in the 2013 Haddam Neck Fair beard competition (Neatness division). I’m here to tell you that there’s more to me than that—I also portrayed either Beebop or Rocksteady in Shawnee High School’s 2002 spirit week presentation; I can’t remember which.
You want more? Hey, a fan! All right! I’m a graduate of the University of Maryland, class of 2007. (GO TERPS!) I’ve got a degree in psychology and a day job as copy editor for a New Jersey-based consulting firm, going on ten years now. Speaking of which, I’m originally from South Jersey, which is the nice part of the state that has cranberry bogs and box turtles, rather than spray tans and industrial fumes. I have two rabbits named Phoenix and Maya and a turtle named Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran. In my spare time, I blog about yard sales. I enjoy Constant Comment tea and running races very slowly. When I was little, I always wanted to start a spoon collection, but my parents would never let me.
I also make awesome videogames.
…Maybe I should’ve mentioned that part before the spoons.
Besides my work with Oh, a Rock!, I provide freelance writing, proofreading, design, and testing services to a variety of gaming projects, big and small. Some of my clients include Moment Games, Choice of Games, and Daedalic Entertainment. Here on this site you’ll find links to the projects I’ve worked on (well, the interesting ones, anyway), a blog about life as an indie game developer, and my résumé in case you’d like to hire me to work on your next game (PLEASE HIRE ME).
I hope you enjoy my website, and if you don’t, I hope you never tell me. I just don’t think I could take that kind of rejection.
