Hello, portfolio webpage reader! My name is William Hoffmann (like it says on the banner above).
As long as I can remember, I've loved to create stories. I'd take any opportunity I can to put a creative spin on my work, such as transforming my school PowerPoint presentations into animated spectacles.
Since childhood, games have been my passion. Even back then I considered making video games, but the idea was just a fantasy at the time.
However, I got serious about it when I left my home in Western Massachusetts to go to college at the University of Southern California. I double majored in Interactive Media and Film Production, alternating between films and games every semester. Completing both majors was a balancing act, but I put my all into my projects, and I made it through.
After graduating in 2014, I did a couple of odd jobs in the industry. Eventually I landed my first game design position at Blue Marble Game Co. Blue Marble was a great place for me to work up my design skills, and now I'm ready to move up in the world.
