As an independent game developer and web developer, my skills are broad and versatile. I handle all aspects of web and game development, from design to programming, art, and sound. My experience spans working on solo projects, being part of small teams, and even acting as lead or project manager. I trained in programming and software development at Millersville University, and recently earned a full-stack JavaScript certificate from Code Fellows. I'm well-versed in a variety of programming languages, game engines, and software tools, and I continue to expand my superhero toolbelt of skills on a weekly basis.

I am a student studying computer science in university. I had an interest in programming since I was a teenager, especially in game development. By completing several small projects of my own, I taught myself C,C++,D and X86 assembly. Now I am looking to apply my experience and enthusiasm to create cutting edge projects, and to get a better idea of an industry. I am particularly interested in game development(graphics/physics/ai), high performance programs and compiler development. I have a good knowledge of OpenGL(2 and 3+) and windows and linux apis, plus a basic understanding of DirectX11. I also have a bit of experience with website development, in particular html, css and javascript (client and server with node.js).
