Full Biography

I am a Front-End Web Designer, occasional developer, Videogame Developer, and 3D Modeler/Animator from Charlotte, NC. Through my indie game studio Helical Games I have gained experience in brand strategy, creative direction and project management. I have been working on web since 2005 and on 3D modeling since 2008, I have an AAS in Simulation and Game Design and an A+ Certification. I have acted as a speaker for the Game Developers Alliance at UNCC teaching aspiring developers to use Unreal Engine, and serve annually on the SCC Advisary Board to help them shape their Game Design courses. I am a flexible learner, and have self-taught in numerous software packages.

My current goal is to become a full-stack web developer and my skill-set constantly changes. Currently my strongest point is in the front-end department and design.
