I started out as a measly game design/ graphics student in high school, and in college I studied animation for about six months, before finding my true calling at Future Games. When I realized that I could make a career out of my lifelong love of writing, everything fell into place.
Because of my mixed background, I have useful knowledge in many areas, including 3D modeling, animation and a big helping of game design. Having a background in game design makes me skilled in implementing narrative into existing game design.
Short answer: I am a storyteller.
Long answer: I'm Ellen. A game design student at Future Games in Stockholm, studying game design, with a great love of writing and narrative design. I have a special passion for world design and lore design, but really any type of creative writing can catch my eye. Through the years and projects I have been working on, I have learnt to adapt my writing style to any project out there.
(These are a few of my favorite books, and the authors who wrote them have been my guiding lights and sources of inspiration throughout my life)
I am a bit of a multitasker when it comes to life. Seems like I always have two, three or a hundred projects going at the same time.
My hobbies are varied and endless, but can be summed up in two categories; animals and creating. I have enough animals in my apartment to open up a small urban zoo, and when I'm not at work I spend all my time in my workshop, where I write, sew, do woodworking, smithing, CAD-ing or jewelry design. All of this when I'm not out in the woods with my dog or on the couch glued to my Nintendo Switch of course.
