About Me


I'm a 21 year old programmer based in Melbourne, Australia with a passion for games and over 6 years experience with Unity and C#. I am currently completing my second and final year of study at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment. I started making games around 2014 with GameMaker and haven't looked back since! My passion truly lies in programming and I love the incredibly abstract problem-solving opportunities it presents and the creativity required to solve them!

My spare time is usually spent playing indie games, participating in game jams and working on side projects which can also be found here as I continue to work on them. I love being able to design and develop fun experiences for others! I believe any problem, no matter how impossible it may seem, can be overcome if you put your mind to it.

Qualifications & Experience

Between 2021 - 2022 I studied at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment, completing the Diploma of Screen and Media and Diploma of Information Technology in 2021, and then the Advanced Diploma of Professional Game Development in 2022. While studying in 2022 I joined a small indie studio as one of two programmers on the team, working on their debut game for PC and Nintendo Switch, which is yet to be officially announced.

The majority of my experience in game development has been in Unity with C#, but I also have a few years experience with C++, GLSL / HLSL shader languages, and HTML / CSS which I used to make this portfolio website!

  • Procedural Generation
