About Me

Hi, I’m Andrew Yoder. I got my start as a modder in 2007. Between 2011 and 2015 I freelanced and made experimental art games while earning a degree in History. From 2015 through the summer of 2018 I worked at Hi-Rez Studios as a level designer on Paladins, Smite Adventures, and on Paladins Battlegrounds before it became Realm Royale. I am currently at Digital Extremes working on Warframe.

I also have a design blog over Here and a twitter over There. You can contact me at AndrewYoder [at] live.com
