A Few Things About Me

My longer list of skills and experience. If you wanted work examples, see my project page.


About My Professional Qualifications

Some so far; the highlights are below.

I have filled all sorts of roles at the Emergent Media Center at Champlain College in Burlington, VT. My first paid position there was a Junior Web Developer and eventually went on to be a team lead for a semester on their Design Challenge projects before I went abroad and had to leave the project :'(.

When I went abroad though, I had the opportunity to be a Programming Intern at Ironbelly Studios in Montreal, QC, where I worked primarily on helping keep their asset sale side of their business updated, and occasionally helping with customer issues.

You can also see my resume and LinkedIn above for more information on my professional experience.

I've worked in a few different languages (some programming, some not) over the years. The list barely scratches the surface of what's out there, but I'm always interested in projects that let me dip my toes in new ones.

I have experience in a couple of different people languages too! I am in no way close to fluent in anything other than English, but am definitely willing to learn another language if given the opportunity.

I was obviously exposed ot a bit of French while in Montreal, but since I remember almost nothing, I did not include it above.

I've used a variety of different tools over the course of my education.

I've also noodled around in a bunch of other tools like Audactiy, Adobe Premiere and Blender. I'm not very good with any of them, but I can put something together if I needed to.

About My Education and Training

I graduated from Champlain College in May, 2021 with a B.S. in Game Programming and a minor in Mathematics (GPA: 3.6).

Apart from college, I hold a handful of professional certifications, including:

I have also gone through TestOut's Desktop Pro, PC Pro and CompTIA A+ training as well, but do not hold any of the corresponding certifications.

About Me the Person

Born in the fall of 1999, I am 22 years young. Despite remembering no 90s TV shows, I still consider myself a 90s kid.

Short answer: Fallout: New Vegas

Long Answer: can change with my mood. I have sunk hundreds of hours into Fallout: New Vegas so it is probably #1 90% of the time, along with the rest of the franchise; however, The Witcher 3, Civilization 5 (which alternates with FONV for most hours played), and Metro: Exodus follow closely behind. Recently, though, the Mass Effect franchise has also become a contender for most favoritest.

Some other of my favorite games (in no particular order) are: Gris, Risk of Rain 2, Dishonored, Rimworld, and Battle Realms.

Apart from video games I have been getting into fish-keeping. I read here and there as well. I am currently exploring other non-computer related hobbies.
