I was pleasantly surprised myself - wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is, considering all the hype and attention it's received

Introduction
I am lead designer at Adrian Crook & Associates (adriancrook.com), a game design and strategy consultancy focusing on mobile, social and casual games.

Throughout my career, I've had varied professional experience in different design and leadership roles, working in both large and small teams, on console, mobile, Facebook, and browser-based games and apps.

From my experience working with some of gaming's biggest IPs (Transformers, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, and other undisclosed projects) and publishers (Activision, Ubisoft, Capcom, etc.), I am attuned to the unique needs that arise when working with established IP and publisher identities. I also have experience working with publishers to re-invent and re-introduce classic gaming IPs on current-gen platforms.

Outside of my work with AC+A, I'm available for any design or creative writing work that your project may need, regardless of platform or genre. In addition, I am also available for light Japanese to English translation. 

If you are interested in my services or have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me via kevinoke@gmail.com.
