Hello, I'm Drew!

I create commercial games for platforms like Steam and Itch. I teach people how to do that, too!

I record free and premium game development tutorials for YouTube and my own course app. Coming Soon!

I keep a casual blog right here on this website where I document my learnings and reflect on projects.
