The story of ROBOTO follows the adventures of Robbie the Robot.  Robbie must seek out the lost superweapon ROBOTO, the only thing that can defeat the hordes of nano-bots that have devastated the solar system.  Gina, his ex-girlfriend, also happens to be the ruling intelligence of the nano-bots, which complicates matters.

ROBOTO is a concept for a science-fiction game I used in a number of VFS assignments.  This includes a cut-scene script sample, a level breakdown, and a game design document.

The first document is a game review of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.  I discuss the game, the franchise, and include a diagram of all the Prince of Persia games to come out up to the time of writing.

The second document is a term paper on the topic of social science research into online communities.  I discuss was has been learned so far, the methods used, and their potential  as a powerful research tool in the future.

As an undergraduate student at Yale University, I wrote a number of papers on many subjects.  I've included two papers here.

The first document is a research paper from an architecture class.  I compare two philosophies of architecture; Le Courbisier's building as machine and Louis Sullivan's building as organism. I conclude that the philosophy of building as organic machine fits perfectly with the ideals of sustainable architecture.

The second document is a final paper from a sustainability class. I and a partner discuss sustainability improvements to the Yale University campus.
