Thanks so much for taking an interest in my projects! If you’re new to my work, then here’s a little more about myself:
I started teaching myself game server programming as a hobby back in high school after joining the Conquer Online private server community. It was around that time when I decided to drop my acceptance to a four-year university in graphic design and marketing to pursue my interests in programming and computer science.
During my years at community college, I made friends with likeminded engineers who helped put a roof over my head, gain confidence, and establish a stronger financial footing for myself to carry me through university. The college hired me as a lead tutor and lab administrator after my second year, and I eventually broke into the software industry a year later with a paid internship in industrial automation software. I discovered a lot of passions in that college’s lab with new friends and now current colleagues.
In early 2017, I graduated from a four-year university with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science; and today, I work in the game industry for the company that inspired my commitment to quality since the very beginning. At the end of the day, I couldn’t be happier with my current role and where it’s taking me, and I’m so glad I took the initiative back in high school. I lead each day with a desire to continue learning and brighten the lives of players around the world through software and entertainment.
