09/2018 – 07/2019RingZero Game Studio
Senior Game Designer- Market Research and Writing High Concepts/Pitches using MS Office
- Overhauling an existing project for pitches/conventions
Recommendation"Florian is, without a doubt, the most technical and capable
game designer I have ever worked with in my entire career.
His documentation is clean and concise, as a programmer,
it had everything I needed to understand the feature as
a whole. The details of each feature are carefully enu-
merated and things which needed special consideration
are always highlighted. As a producer, it's easy to discuss
complex features and understand Florian's reasoning
behind each element in his design documents.

I highly recommend working with Florian and will do it
in a heartbeat should the opportunity present itself
again in the future."

Recommendation"Florian is a very talented and committed GD.
I had the pleasure of managing him directly at arkavis,
and while times were not always easy, and the management
model was completely foreign to him, he manages to
always come through.
I believe Florian to excel at working alone, taking
ownership of game design.
He strikes a very delicate balance in speed, accuracy and simplicity.
I firmly believe these traits make him a very valuable asset. "
