Emerson Smith is a young, queer game developer from South Carolina, currently living in Virginia.

Her professional career began while studying her undergraduate at Clemson University. Between classes in Computer Science and Digital Production Arts, she often found herself volunteering in the Digital Media + Learning Lab in the education department. It was there she started working in virtual reality on game based learning projects, which would later evolve into her first professional freelance work after college.

Now, Emerson is continuing to pursue her passion in interactive media through short game jams, long form passion projects, and daily work as a developer on educational, game based learning games.
