Cook Serve Forever

Video Game

Chop, stir, and sauté your way through the bustling solarpunk city of Helianthus as Nori Kaga, a food cart chef aspiring to make it big like her role model, the Culinary Queen, Chef Rhubarb.

I was the narrative lead, screenwriter (with co-writer Ryan Matejka) and voice director for Cook Serve Forever. I also animated cutscenes and edited the trailers. 

15 actors provided voice work for the game's 250 page screenplay, which I directed both in-person in Los Angeles and remotely. My directing responsibilities also included casting actors, script analysis, scheduling, and editing recorded dialogue. 

The voice cast includes Elspeth Eastman (League of Legends), Maya Aoki Tuttle (The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom), Emme Montgomery (El Paso Elsewhere), SungWon Cho (God of War: Ragnarok), and Broden Kelly (Aunty Donna).
