full resume

I have been making games in my free time ever since I found out about programming over 10 years ago.
After starting my first commercial project in 2013, during my master's degree, I put the latter on hold in 2014 to fully focus on the game and my professional career.

I have always been interested in visual effects and have written several graphics libraries from scratch over the years. In general I enjoy creating and working with rendering pipelines and shaders, and using the GPU for effect simulation and post processing. While I have worked and like working on a variety of systems, my major strengths are thus in this area.

I especially enjoy working in teams of people with diverse skills, and am always on the lookout for interesting opportunities.
