About Me

My name is Jennifer Stienstra and I’m a writer and narrative designer. I’ve been working on games for 4 years now, 2 years as a professional. My past experience includes working on visual novelsepisodic mobile games, and a metroidvania.

Prior to entering the field of game development, I received a diploma in Print Journalism, gaining experience with different kinds of writing including articles, press releases, scripts, and short stories. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in Game Design that I earned with Honours, where I learned how to make games and create narratives with mechanics and gameplay in mind.
