Israel Jones (he/ him) – MFA student at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, Interactive Media and Games Division – wizzardjones.com
Izzy Jones is a graduate from Harvey Mudd College, and a second year in USC’s Interactive Media MFA program. Israel has a deep interest in both the sciences and the arts, and is particularly passionate about game development, which wraps together many skills from both areas. One of his core beliefs as a person is that, no matter what your job is, you can find ways to build your community and help people through your work. With this as well as his love for learning and education in mind, Israel hopes to use the knowledge and experience that he acquires at USC to make the field of games more visible and accessible for students of color like himself. He also wants to someday help provide educational and creative tools that can make the creation of games a much more mainstream and accessible artistic medium.
