Hello, I'm Mikaila

 

I’m from Idaho Falls, Idaho, and I’ve loved video games ever since I started playing the old copies of Myst and Secret of Monkey Island on my family’s computer (Yeah, I’m young). I have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, a minor in art, and will soon complete my master’s in video game production from the University of Utah’s Electronic Arts and Entertainment program. My biggest strength as a producer is my diverse background — having both technical and artistic experience allows me to better develop and assign tasks, and predict problems in the work pipeline each division of the team might face.

I love making games that do more than entertainment - I currently work at the University of Utah’s Therapeutic Games and Applications Lab, and would love to continue working on games that address educational, medical, and awareness issues through the power of play.

My other interests include geology, animal rescue, and trying to cook strange desserts.

(Some) of my Favorite Games:
-Tetris
-The Stanley Parable
-Cities: Skylines
-Rollercoaster Tycoon
-Crypt of the Necrodancer
-Legend of Zelda (Majora’s Mask, Breath of the Wild, and Link to the Past are tied)
-Portal
-Papers, Please
