About Me

I have always been people orientated. I connect well with people and I try to use that connection to make, even the slightest difference in their lives, for the better. While I can work effectively alone, helping people and collaborating with people has always been my drive. My experience in the game development industry has allowed me to fulfil my creative passion while working with others to achieve an overall vision. I am an unorthodox thinker who is always willing to think outside of the box. I am conscientious, capable, and steadfast, especially in high-pressure situations. I have always valued open and clear communication and maintain exceptional problem-solving and decision making abilities. Currently I’m studying a year long course in Software Engineering and Full Stack Web Development.
