CV / ABOUT

PERSONAL PROFILE

I am currently an Associate Programmer at d3t Ltd. I graduated from the University of Bolton with a 1st class degree in BSc (Hons) Games Programming in 2019. My career aim is to be a lead programmer at a game studio. I feel I can achieve this by my good understanding of C++ / C# as well as Visual Studio, Unreal Engine and Unity. I am quickly improving at console development (PS4 & XB1) and with version control software (Perforce & Git). I thrive on teamwork and solving problems.
