About Me

 

 

Hello there! I am Nigel, an avid level designer/world builder with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Digital Media for Game Design from ICAT Design and Media College, in Bangalore - India, accredited by the university of wales, UK and a Master's in Interactive Technology with a Major in Level Design at the SMU Guildhall, located in Texas - USA.

Something you should know about what got me into level design

At a very young age, I have always been into the aquarium hobby. This gradually introduced me to Aquascaping, which is the craft of arranging aquatic plants, rocks, or drift wood in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium.

After pursing my bachelors in game design back in 2011, I discovered that I could be doing the same concept of aqua-scaping to develop great and beautiful landscapes in my level designs. This boosted my passion for designing levels and building worlds which further led me to pursue my masters in level design at SMU Guildhall.

Apart from aquariums and aqua-scaping as a hobby, I love playing games, fishing, traveling to new places, playing basket ball, trying out different foods (total foodie here), and listening to different kinds of music (anything but hard rock and metal).
