Biography

Tay (short for Taychin) is originally from Bangkok, Thailand but currently lives in San Francisco, fluent in both Thai and English.

I have a strong passion for visual design and game design – specializing in both but have been a bit of a generalist on recent projects. I’ve dabbled in many 3D game engines and various artistic mediums. My current project is Beacon, a sci-fi 3D Roguelike video game slated to be released on PC and Xbox One.
