About me

I am a graduated student from studying masters in Interactive Digital Media at Ravensbourne. During the course I explored the insight of innovating ideas and producing collaboration work in a mix of art and programming. I am a passionate game developer and understand programming in C++, and developing in game engines. I have produced work for commissions such as the NHS, and Independent Game Clients while I have studied BA Animation at Ravensbourne. During the master course, I had been learning how to create ideas, understanding businesses and leading a team as a creative director/producer. I had been practising, C#, and Blueprint on Unity 5 and Unreal Engine 4 to understand the process of game designing. The 3D programs I use is 3ds Max, Maya and Zbrush to work on my interactive game projects, and to work on VR Projects.
