Hi, I'm Momo.

I am a game developer, programmer, designer, artist, dancer, and choreographer studying Computer Science & Game Development at the University of Southern California. When I'm not being any of the above, I enjoy playing with dogs, analyzing anime and videogames, following competitive figure skating, and volunteering.
