Jeanine Adkisson



I am a musician, composer, and producer with extensive community experience in project, social media, and event management. I also have experience with platforming game design, and player testing. I also have a 15-year career in web services development behind me. I am a Swiss Army knife of skills, capable of wearing many hats, and would flourish in a small games studio.

I am a US citizen and permanent resident of Canada. I live in Toronto and am willing to work locally or remotely. I can accept payment either in CAD or USD, and require no additional visas to do work for US, Canadian, or other companies.

Music Portfolio

I play piano and percussion. I have been making electronic music since 2014 in a wide variety of genres, mostly involving a fusion of retro game music, dance music, blues, and funk.

I tend to favour the more melody-forward style of game music over the more modern movie-ambient style. I am not afraid of loops. I have a background in jazz, marching percussion, and band arrangement, and a formal education in classical harmony.
