About Me
A 4th year Computer Science Major at SFU with an interest in computer graphics especially related to games.

I have been making games since elementary school. I started by using tools such as RPGMaker and Game Maker. I taught myself flash/actionscript2 in high school and made some simple games and movies. Then in grade 12 I took my first programming course and then went on to do computer science at SFU.

Over the past year few years I have been creating games using C# and microsoft's XNA framework. I have probably created around 10 or so games/projects in XNA, however most of then are unfinished. I am most interested in recreating some of my favorite games and improving upon them.

When Im not programming I enjoy drawing, I often use GIMP along with my drawing tablet, and have recently been enjoying working with the vector graphics program Inkscape. I have also done a lot of work with 3D modeling in Blender and last summer used it to create an animated short film an animation course (CMPT466).

I have had several co-op positions, including one in the game industry. The game industry is an area that I would be interested in working in after graduation.
