A Bit About Me

I began my career in 2007 as a Technical Artist and have since worked towards more challenging roles.
Digging in to projects and finding solutions to problems is something I find deeply satisfying.

Working with code and computer graphics has been a passion of mine for most of my life. Beyond just writing code, I've had experience with creating real-time models, textures, animations, and lighting as well. After taking the time to set all these pieces up, I always wanted to interact with them in more dynamic ways. This ultimately led me down the path of learning more about game and application development.

Throughout the course of my career I've worked on projects for mobile (Android/iOS) applications, VR/AR applications, web-based applications, and desktop applications. Having such a varied work history, along with my eagerness to learn about new technology, has made me into more of a generalist developer. My strength lies in my flexibility though - I am a quick learner and am able to prioritize project goals in terms of client demands and fluctuating deadlines.


Highlights

A few examples of projects I've worked on. My "work" page is currently under construction.

Sparkypants : Tools

Various standalone tool applications for a proprietary game engine. Written in C++ and using Coherent UI middleware. I am responsible for creating each tool and maintaining its functionality based on feature requests, user needs, project requirements, and bug fixes. This video shows a small subset of the various tools and their functionality.

Bully! Entertainment :
AR Examples

I had the opportunity to work on a number of these projects setting up various aspects including: UI/UX, animation systems, camera controls, and image tracking.

Gentleman Scholar :
Visa "Surf"

My main responsibility on this project was to create terrain and buildings for each of the environments seen in this video. The geometry was created using a combination of 3D Studio Max, satellite data from the USGS, and a bit of Max scripting. All the locations are real-world places and were created accurately to scale.
