Frameworks & Libs:
I have experience with various C and C++ libraries including STL.
OGRE Engine – I have a lot of experience with this graphics engine, I used it a lot during college
to speed up development time on projects.
Torque Game Engine – Torque is an advanced engine that features a client/server architecture
and an advanced scripting layer. I used this during my time at college to learn how to script and
went on to create a multiplayer co-operative first person shooter.

was used to handle ragdolls, rigid bodies and other physical effects in the games.
OpenGL – While in college I created various projects using OpenGL including a terrain height
XNA – I used XNA for some of my college projects, including a racing game team project.
FMOD – I created an audio manager for my games using the FMOD sound library. It supports

I absolutely love playing video games. It’s been a passion of mine ever since I can remember.

have created such as World of Goo. I have a broad taste in games and will give any genre a try.
