I'm currently working at HERE Technologies as a Graphics Software Engineer on the 3D Rendering team. I recieved my Master's degree from the Visualization program at Texas A&M University, College Station. I hold a Bachelors degree in Computer Science & Engineering and have always had a keen interest in Computer Graphics.
My main areas of interest are rendering and simulation. My programming language of choice is C++. I'm comfortable working with OpenGL and GLSL.
On the production side, I enjoy working with Houdini. I like the procedural nature of it, as opposed to the workflow adopted in other 3D content creation software. I love working on environmental effects since the vast number of natural phenomena in our world gives me the opportunity to simulate something different each time I pick up a new project to work on.
I have played around with Unreal Engine and Unity quite a bit. I also occasionally do web programming in my spare time.
I love football (soccer) and support Liverpool FC. They've been a mainstay in my life since 2005. In 2015, I finally got to visit the city of Liverpool and also take a tour of Anfield, Liverpool's home stadium. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life.
