About


I'm VR game developer with experience leading projects and working with end users of various skill levels.

I'm interested in all kinds of software development, but my major focus is on designing experiences in Virtual Reality as well as integrating AWS Services together.

Most of my development is with Unity, Java, Python and LAMP web applications, but I have additional experience with AWS services including S3, EC2, KMS, RDS, IAM, and CodeStar suite.


I also have skills in other fields like instruction, usability and project management.

I care about my team mates, and strive to make my project great through encouraging contributions from everyone.

I am a life long learner, and am looking for my next challenge.
