ABOUT ME

Hello, and thank you for visiting my portfolio!

I am an undergraduate game developer from the University of Greenwich, in my final year of studies. Combining my love of game development and history to create worlds deep in cultural heritage and history is my passion!

I’ve primarily worked within the Unity engine, and C# for several years including working within Virtual reality. I’ve also worked with the Unreal engine in C++. Experienced in a plethora of other languages outside of games.
