My Profile

My primary focus is programming. I started out with general application programming in java and C#, but my interest for games made me go and study game development. This is where I further developed my C++ skills and got into the world of graphics programming. It also taught me the 3D and concept art pipeline, which gives me insights into the needs of the artists. I’m mostly interested in gameplay programming, but I also enjoy tool development and engine programming.
