Writer & Narrative Designer
Hello! Do you need help with...
As a writer, I create anything from dialogue to world building, character backgrounds, item descriptions, and story beats. However, I'm flexible and I do many types of work including UX writing and copywriting.
I can directly assist you in narrative design, quest design, and content design, as well as more general game design processes, ensuring a close connection between narrative, gameplay, and mechanics.
Whether it's compiling documentation or finding out obscure facts, I enjoy learning and maintaining knowledge. My eclectic academic background allows me to delve into complex topics and formulate methodical research.
Be it social media, community management or communications, I can make sure things run smoothly between your studio and other people! I have good communication skills and can take initiative, but I also collaborate well with others.
🎮 USER EXPERIENCE
I studied Games User Experience and worked closely with developers in the testing and evaluation of their game before release. Therefore, I can provide you with a better understanding of how your products are received and experienced by their users.
I'm fluent in two languages and have a basic grasp on several other. This means I'm able to communicate with almost 20% of the world population! I can contribute not only to the translation of your game but also to its cultural localization.

I'm a young woman of Romanian and
Hungarian origins but, for the past five years, I've been living in Sweden:
studying, meeting people, and growing. I am interested
in media, cultural heritage, and art. I also like to spend my time
researching obscure things and getting too emotionally invested in
My stories tend to be character-driven and I like to explore complex emotions. I usually oscillate between whimsical stories or bildungsroman type of stories. Currently, I am planning to put together a collection of short prose and develop a new game.
