Bachelor's degree, Computer Science @
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
I originally started programming because of interest in video games. I often found myself writing game engines and game editors in C++. Because of that, I developed strong skills in application development and object oriented programming.

I originally started programming because of interest in video games. I often found myself writing game engines and game editors in C++. Because of that, I developed strong skills in application development and object oriented programming. During college I focused on artistic and design skills alongside my computer science studies which eventually guided me into web development and UI-design. Besides that, I gained an interest in mobile technologies (Palm OS, etc).In general I really like stuff that's interconnected, flexible, powerful, and well-built. These qualities drive me to research technologies and explore the possibilities.
During college, I always had a drive to get professional experience. During each summers I took an internship and expanded my skills in technical writing and research, as well as hardware and software support. I also learned that my passion is definitely programming, as I managed to use programming in each position I took, even though they were not explicitly software positions.
