I am a Computer Science graduate based in Sydney, Australia. I have a keen interest in software development - game technology in particular. Hence I have been working as a programer at video game company BigWorld Technology since January 2007.
Besides being an avid computer geek, I was also brought up in a musical environment. I learned to play the piano, flute, and oboe from a young age (attending the Sydney Conservatorium High School).
While not working I like to play computer games, read books, play various musical instruments, spend time on GameDev.net or waste time on the internet in general :).
I completed my Computer Science degree (with a major stream in mathematics) at the University of New England in 2007 (as an external student).
Since discovering QuickBasic 4.0 when I was 7, I have learned how to use a number of languages and technologies on different platforms. My current main languages of choice are C++, C#, and Python.
Over the years I've developed a wide variety of utilities and applications for the desktop, servers, and the web.
Some of the things I've used:
Besides being proficient with actual coding, I like to think about and design the overall application architecture/structure (how everything fits together). I am a stickler for neat, tidy and readable code.
I am experienced in using Microsoft Visual Studio, and source control such as Subversion.
Since Januray 2007 I have been working fulltime at BigWorld Technology as a programmer.
Previously, over the years, I have done various jobs relating to IT. These include:
