Hi, I'm Momo.

I am a game developer, programmer, designer, artist, dancer, and cosplayer currently attending the University of Southern California, majoring in Computer Science & Game Development. When I'm not being any of the above, I enjoy playing with dogs, analyzing anime and video games, and following competitive figure skating.
