I am a self-employed independent game developer based in Melbourne, Australia. I'm currently studying a double degree at Swinburne University of Technology [B.S (Computer Science and Software Engineering) and a B.A (Games and Interactivity)].
My skills include, but are not limited to:
1. Game Design and Development (Using GameMaker Studio)
PC, Mac, iOS, Android, HTML5 (+Chrome Web Store), Windows 8 (+Phone), Tizen, Ubuntu, more to come
2. Music Composition
3. Web, Graphic and Logo Design
4. Quality Assurance (QA)
I started making games when I was 8 years old (using Microsoft PowerPoint). Then in high school I found Game Maker, which I’ve been using ever since. I am proficient in GameMakerLangauge (GML), and I’m happy to share my knowledge with anyone who is willing to learn or wants to create quality games. GameMaker Studio allows for insanely fast prototyping and development speed, meaning I can create complete HTML5 games or game design prototypes usually in less than a day. GameMaker Studio's cross-platform support is fantastic, enabling me to export and publish to a plethora of platforms. Even XBox support is on the horizon.
One of my goals is to teach GameMaker and Game Design to classes of students.
I’ve also worked as a professional pianist at The Hotel Windsor in Melbourne CBD, which was an interesting experience.
