I recently graduated from the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, Arizona with a Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering. I am pursuing a career in game programming and hope to eventually become a graphics programmer.

I started game programming when I was 16. I created several Adobe Flash games. However, while I was in high school I also created websites using PHP, MySQL and a variety of other web technologies that were popular at the time. Ultimately I decided to pursue game development after graduating from high school, particularly since I was unsure if I wanted to design or program.

During my first semester at college I became fascinated with computer graphics, particularly real-time rendering techniques and raytracing. I also began programming with C++ during my first semester. I enjoyed being much closer to the machine than with ActionScript and the other scripting languages I worked with. As such, I focused my efforts on game programming instead of design.

In my free time I like to watch movies, play board and tabletop games, listen to music and play computer games. My favorite computer games include Sid Meier's Civilization IV, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Company of Heroes and Battlefield 2.
