Who am I ?

A Game Developer

I am passionate about games. Ever since my eyes were first glued to a GameBoy I have been excited about games. So when I wanted to learn Computer Science UU was the natural choice with it's Game Technology specialization. Since then I've been able to work on four serious games and complete a handful of solo and team game jams in my free time.
