Hi! I’m Paul. You probably know me as the founder and head boy of Oh, a Rock! Studios, developer of such
fine weird videogames as Cat President: A More Purrfect Union, Internet Court, and Too Many Santas!, a game where you try to hook up with the mall Santa Claus. I’m here to tell you there’s so much more to me than that: One time (this is true), I also won a red ribbon at an agricultural fair—because I grew a very nice beard.
You want more? Hey, a fan! All right! I graduated from the University of Maryland (GO TERPS!) with a degree in Psychology and a minor in hiding from my roommates. I’m originally from South Jersey, which is the nice part of the state that has cranberry bogs and hotels shaped like elephants, and not the part that smells like expired toxic sludge. I have a golden retriever named Cedric and a turtle named Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran, both of whom have featured prominently in my games. In my spare time, I post weird yard sale finds on Instagram. I also enjoy drinking unusual teas and running races very slowly (the turtle would be proud). This one time, I drove out to a “museum” in rural Ohio to learn about the eight secret Presidents of the United States, the ones the history books won’t tell you about. Oh! And when I was little, I always wanted to start a spoon collection, but my parents would never let me*.
…Maybe I should get back to the videogames.
Besides my work with Oh, a Rock!, I provide freelance writing, proofreading, design, and testing services to a variety of gaming projects, big and small. My clients include Choice of Games, Moment Games, and Daedalic Entertainment. Here on this site you’ll find links to the projects I’ve worked on, a podcast about making and playing videogames, and information on how to hire me for your next project (PLEASE HIRE ME).
I hope you enjoy my little corner of the Internet, and if you don’t, I hope you never tell me. I just don’t think I could take that kind of rejection.
* I have since acquired one (1) spoon. I’m happy with my collection so far.
