Summary

With over 8 years of being in video game development and now virtual reality, I have become a powerhouse of many skills. Programming inside Unity 3d (C#), and Unreal 4 (C++) has made me well adapt to these engines and their coding languages. I have setup project structures, naming conventions and developmental workflows to keep projects organized and increase productivity. Making pipeline tools (Python) really makes you passionate about organization. I have adapted to the Substance Painter/Designer and PBR workflows. With my hard work ethic, ability to problem solve, and continuous learning attitude, I am versatile and a great addition to any team.
