Michael Wright
Art Generalist
Raleigh, United States

My name is Michael Wright. I am passionate about games and art, and I have developed skills that will lead me to a career in game development. My time in high school and college has educated me on the inner workings of the industry and the tools used to create modern games. I have developed proficiency with game art and graphic design using the latest industry software. I have earned my Bachelor's at William Peace University.

When I'm not working on games I love watching movies and playing D&D with friends. I have an interest in storytelling which is part of what led me to seek out working in a creative field.
