I'm Haifa, a digital media artist, game designer, and detailed project manager from San Jose, California. I graduated with honors from San Jose State University where I earned a BFA in Digital Media Art. I am passionate about creating fun and engaging interactive experiences that surprise and delight users.
Some of my favorite things
I love books, video games (especially ones with a great narrative), CNC machines, and most things from the 80's.
I also love learning new things and teaching.
Let's work together!
I am currently taking on new projects.
The idea for this game came from my fondness of 1980’s popular culture, and a desire to share my point of
view on the transitioning of MTV away from music to reality programming. “I Want My MTV Back” is a
fictional narrative game about restoring MTV to its glory days.
Not your typical graveyard shift... Sylvia, a middle-age single mom, is hired as the nighty janitor at the Bagox Corp. Each night Sylvia cleans the office building and faces some pretty scary situations, but she continues to work hard everynight just to take home a paycheck.
Valley-2-Valley is a research-based project aiming to align the similarities and differences between Silicon Valley and the prospective Titanium Valley in Russia. This project used the Minecraft game space as both a meeting place and design area. The collaborative project was built in-game using Minecraft blocks. The data for the project was then extracted from the game and built with real materials using CNC machinery.
Cupcake Monster is a single player platformer game about pacifying a Dino-Monster. Hop around on puffy clouds collecting cupcakes and avoiding bees to keep the Dino-Monster occupied and happy so that he doesn’t destroy humanity.
