I'm Melissa. I make video games!

 I am an experienced Combat, Gameplay and Systems Designer with leadership experience. I am currently a Principal Designer at Respawn Entertainment working with the Apex Legends team!

 I have an very wide depth of experience working in creative roles on teams of all sizes (2 to 1000+). I'm extremely passionate about working with multidisciplinary teams to find the fun in areas like Combat, AI, Systems, or any other design areas where my team thinks I can help.

 I'm also a relentless advocate for underrepresented groups in the games industry. I was a co-chair in The Coalition's Women in Games board but was also previously a lead in BioWare's Women in Games board. I also previously ran a successful meetup for developers from underrepresented groups for 3 years in Edmonton, Alberta called yegfemdev.
