Creative Director/UX Director

LEGO UNIVERSE

LEGO Universe was a 2010 MMO released on PC, targeting children and LEGO enthusiast years 12+. I had the pleasure to join the LEGO team as a UX Designer, where I improved on many flows within the game, hooked up new sounds, adjusted screens for localization, designed UX for new systems such as Crafting, Garmadon Boss fight, Recipes, and helped support the effort to switch the game from a subscription based model to a micro-transaction monetization model.
