Jimmy has been a gamer since he was a toddler pointing out the best path to anyone playing the family’s Legend of Zelda video game. At age 12, Jimmy was diagnosed with Stargardts Juvenile Macular Degeneration. He lost all central vision by the age of 17. Jimmy’s limited vision changed some gaming options for him, and while attending college for Chemistry and Biology, he discovered a wide range of RPG and tabletop games. A mathematician at heart, Jimmy analyzed and mentally rated the gameplay, refining what he considered a “good” game.
He brings that analytic mind and creative imagination honed by his limited vision to all his game designs. His goal is to create games that are elegant and simple in gameplay but complex and variable in strategy, making them accessible and interesting to non-gamers and gamers alike. Jimmy is happily married with two daughters and lives on a small farm in the Midwest.
