About me

For the last two years, I have been working toward my Bachelor's degree in Game Programming at the University of Advancing Technology.  During that time, I have learned to code in multiple languages, including C# and C++, and I am currently training in Python.  By utilizing both Unity and Unreal Engine 4, as well as the skills acquired at UAT, I was able to develop several game projects, which you can check out here: Portfolio.

With my newfound love for programming, I intend to make a focused effort, in the near future, to learn all about Extended/Mixed/Augmented, and Virtual Reality, as well as Artificial Intelligence, with the hope that, one day, I can make a positive impact in that arena.  I am currently in the process of creating a mobile application/game that will utilize AR and AI to teach children how to read. Details about that application can be found here: Art of Reading.

Finally, as I continue to strive for personal growth and development, through online game jams, individual training courses, and the wisdom of industry professionals, it is my intent to leverage that knowledge, as well as the skills obtained at UAT, to create an online presence focused on guiding future programmers down a similar path.
