I’ve always loved to play videogames since I was very young. With time I began to develop an interest in how my favorite source of entertainment were made and that’s when I began to seriously pursue a career in the Video games Development Industry.
I personally enjoy working as a Gameplay Programmer alongside designers and artists, however, I also enjoy taking a deep dive into how game engines are programmed. Thus, I would like to challenge myself and work as an Engine Programmer.
I like to play open-world videogames with rich and beaming worlds and immersive storylines. To me, videogames have a unique way of providing an escape from our reality, while also giving us a way to explore current topics in our lives in a uniquely alternative way. It truly fascinates me how creative the human mind can be and I feel games development in one of the most exciting ways of expressing that.
I have mostly worked with 2D games professionally. My most recent work has been on the upcoming title Space Chef, by BlueGooGames. However, I would love to branch out and work in 3D games as well. 3D games require a strong grasp of 3D math when implementing features and I would very much like to delve into and work with that as well.
The best part for me about working on videogames is watching artists express themselves. I love working with them as it brings on the challenge of working with alternative ideas within the confines for the scope of the project.
I also developed an interest in full stack development for a short period of time. In order to explore what that career path would look like, I took a training course by Schema Zone, based in Canada. The training course took us through the motions of researching and developing an App, Database and Website for a brand that made luxury clothes for children.
