Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books.

Nathan developed its puzzles, quests, and open world content.

He specializes in narrative design with the focus on:

  • Crafting linear and non-linear stories
  • Iterating on gameplay systems and content
  • Refining scripted events and cinematics

“I’ve been a storyteller for as long as I can remember. Before I was in games, I was in film and live events, working as director, producer, and crew on events ranging from sports to musicals. I love telling stories that enhance a game’s systems. Nothing makes me more upset than a narrative team that never talks with the systems and game designers.
