About Me

I graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology where I studied Software Engineering with an application domain in Video Game Development.

I've loved video games ever since I was a kid - I wrote my first computer program to reduce the amount of typing to start DOS games back when I couldn't type very quickly. From that point on, I loved programming computers and always wondered what code went into making a game run.

By my teenage years, I started making my own games, which you can find at the bottom of the projects section.

In high school I won a programming contest at The University of Scranton two years in a row.

In August 2004 I began attending RIT where I polished up my programming skills and learned the fundamentals of software engineering and how to reliably produce quality software on time.

I worked on a Microsoft Research funded multi-language runtime programmable game engine to learn the basics of graphics and game programming from 2005-2007.

From there I started working in the industry at companies such as Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard.

To date I have shipped 5 titles professionally which you can view here.

    A 3D game that I worked on a few months ago, Aliens, was shown off at the Microsoft GameFest 2007 Keynote given by Chris Satchell, General Manager of the Game Development Group at Microsoft. Awesome!

    I attended GDC in San Francisco, CA. I helped promote RIT at their booth by showing off Rocktropolis, a game my team and I created for class here at RIT. I met many cool people and had a great time. Thanks to all those that tried out our game!

    July 29th - July 30th 2006
    I volunteered at the ACM SIGGRAPH Sandbox Video Game Symposium in Boston, MA on July 29th - 30th 2006. I also had the pleasure of showing off the progress we've made with MUPPETS over the last year at the RIT booth.

    March 21st - 25th 2006
    I attended GDC in San Jose, CA from March 21st - 25th 2006.
