I have been gaming since I was six years old and developed an early interest in its art form. What was once a hobby to help pass the time quickly evolved into a passion to tell stories and breathe life into what was once just imagination. My affection for games originated on early video game consoles and snowballed into board game design. I would spend hours drawing harsh sketches of adventure games on poster board (that should've been used for homework) and force my family to play my creations. I developed Winter Moon Games from the ground up and I handle all of the day-to-day operations including game design, graphic design, website, social media, video content and more!

I am a self-taught artist who has been practicing art since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I go by the artist name PAZ, combining the initials from my first and last name. Paz is also the Spanish word for peace. Although I have received very little formal training, art has always been one of my passions. Two of my most valuable resources for learning art were my local library and growing up in the small artistic town of Rockport, MA. I learned to work with several mediums and techniques by spending countless hours reading and practicing what I learned as well as conversing with local artists. After experimenting with several mediums, I have found my favorite to be gauche watercolor and ink. My art has evolved from my roots in realism to involve postimpressionistic and surrealistic influences. I believe that art should be playful, full of wonder, and an inspiration for creativity in others.

I grew up playing games, from imaginary adventures in the backyard with my siblings to all-night Mario Party sessions. I started playing Dungeons & Dragons at the age of 10, and so was immersed in the nerd universe. I’ve always loved reading. Music is a huge passion of mine as well. I love spending time outside, hiking, taking pictures, playing in the river, and exploring. (I grew up 20 miles from Zion National Park.) You can usually catch me with a book or a magic deck in hand.
