I am not currently looking for opportunities at this time, but if you are curious, you may see my education and experience below.
I am a master’s graduate interested in interactive media, mobile, or games. Eager to grow as a developer, help solve problems, and learn. I’m intrigued by software that brings good or joy to people.
- Part-Time Unity Programmer
Spherical Cow Games; Online
June 2014 - February 2017
- Implemented data-based game asset systems as per project specifications.
- Used Unity Editor classes to create and edit custom level mission data that is serialized as ScriptableObjects.
- Made an advanced data asset system for Unity for the facilitation of RPG games (progression, stats, and abilities). Created data for developer use in ScriptableObjects and data for game use in XML files.
- Voluntary Part-Time Unity Developer
October 2014 - March 2016
- Made an software system for Unity to observe audio output and offer the decibel and frequency of the current output. Used the audio output to manipulate various elements in a scene with various scripts (like light intensity, material color, object position, prefab swapping, texture swapping, mesh deformation, wireframe toggle, field of view, etc.).
- Made a script to detect a player entering a trigger zone and made several scripts to perform different tasks based on entering trigger zones (like triggering animations, music, waypoint movement, wireframe toggle, trigger particles, prefab swapping, camera switching, object shaking, etc.).
- Quickly implemented new functionality with script-based programming to manipulate Unity objects in various ways (as mentioned above).
- Mobile & Web App Development Contractor
