My Role

October 2015 - Current
At Snowed In Studios I work as a Senior Software Engineer. In this role I act as project & tech lead for various projects as needed. Currently I'm the project & tech lead full time creating artificial intelligence for an unannounced AAA game using C++ in Unreal. This mandate requires the team and myself implement AI that deals with 3D physics, gameplay and animation systems to ensure a believable AI.

I also advise on projects, build estimates for project proposals and coach team members at both junior and peer levels in experience. It's a humbling and mettle-testing experience that I'm quite proud to be trusted with.

Technology

Our studio uses just about every modern game tech you could think to use. I've made games using Unity, WebGL, and Unreal so far in my time at Snowed In.

The studio is known to ship on all platforms. I've personally worked on titles across iOS, Android, PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 while at Snowed In.
