Introduction

I am a software engineer and game developer combo, experienced developing in .NET (C#) and Java. I work as a game developer at Moon Active, where we develop casual mobile games using Unity3d.

I am passionate about software engineering, unit testing and development tools, striving to keep on learning and sharpening my skillset as a software professional. To this end, I am using online MOOC platforms (Coursera, Udacity) and other developer training services (Pluralsight, MVA) to keep on learning.

In my free time I experiment. learn and play different game tools, frameworks and engines and interested in always improving my knowledge in any game related technologies. I am especially into Unity3d, UE4 and MonoGame/XNA.
