Dylan Nordhagen is a senior at the University of Tampa pursuing a BFA in New Media. Since childhood, Dylan has been enamored by Nintendo’s video games for their charm and the various creative mediums involved in their design. In addition to being a self-taught artist and character designer for over 15 years, Dylan also has experience in smaller-end game development and modding. He also contributed creative writing and artwork to a zine he co-published called Turning the Tides. Through his studies and experiments in various art forms, Dylan plans to become an independent game developer who can inspire and bring smiles to others.
