Ryan Jaime

Technical Game Designer

I graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a BS in Computer Science: Game Design. With a grant from UCSC's GameGO, I developed  Beat Box, a VR rhythm game for the Oculus Touch which emphasizes player movement in their physical space. I'm interested in game QA,  marketing,  gameplay programming, and game systems design.  I'm seeking an internship, part-time, or full-time position in the game industry.
