Heya! I'm Declan and I'm looking to enter the game development industry. I'm currently working with a Sydney-based programming school called CODE4FUN, where I share my coding know-how with kids from early primary school all the way up to Year 12!
I've been interested in making games since I was still in primary school - I used to make text adventures in batch files! I've been using Unity since 2014, and over the last few years have been expanding my experience in a variety of other engines, including Unreal Engine, GameMaker and Godot. I also have some experience with more low-level development, such as PyGame and homebrew libraries for Nintendo DS, so I'm open to working in almost any modern game development environment.
Last year, in 2023, I completed my Bachelor of Science in Games Development from the University of Technology Sydney with distinction. During University, I met a ton of amazing people and made some awesome game projects, including the medieval tactics game Gambit, and the physics-based swordplay game Heavy Metal. We've continued work on both of these games outside of study and hope to release them commercially soon.
I also have a keen interest in music and have independently commercially released several albums of electronic music as Apryl and previously as Delcan. I'm familiar with many facets of audio engineering, including sound design, mixing and mastering, and I would be open to working on a project that merges these skills with my experience in game development.
