About Me

Web Developer, Designer and Chipper Chap

Ever since I picked up that Nintendo 64 controller for the first time, I've been passionate about developing and designing games, so it isn't easy finding me in a position where I'm not willing to develop interactive experiences. I've always found web development to be a zen art for me, and something I've found quite naturally.

When I was 10 years old, I stepped away from designing board games to start programming mods for Half-life 2, and since then I have been striving for perfection in each line of code I write. I've been using C++ and ActionScript for years as my preferred languages, but have always been drawn to coding websites in my text editor of (not many people's) choice, VIM.

In my final years of High School, I achieved a Certificate III in Media in a traineeship at Valhalla Studios Bifrost, a Brisbane-based game development company, and loved every second of it. I went on from that to create a program with my current team partner, Joshua Dauth, and a programming friend, Rory Dungan, which we submitted to the SAP Young ICT Explorers competition, placing second.
