Virtual Reality Engineer, Web Developer, User Experience Enthusiast

My Mission

My goal is to design and develop computer software that leaves a positive impact on people's lives.
Specific areas of interest include algorithm creation, user experience design, and multi-technology integration.
I have a passion for virtual and augmented reality and their potential uses across all fields.

My Skills

Software Development

I am highly adept at learning new languages and adapting to the ever evolving world of technology. I can easily enter into established environments and quickly integrate with pre-existing teams. I have been a Team Leader and Project Lead in charge of managing and organizing group tasks on both new and legacy programs. My skills include a proficiency in many major application languages including Java, C, C++, C#, as well as major coding libraries like GLUT/Open GL. My experience also extends to working with GIT source control systems.

Web Design

Having worked as a Project Lead on an enterprise web application for school administration, I have been responsible for the complete development of a module, including logical design, graphical design, implementation, and deployment. This application involved many different coding languages and libraries, including ASP.NET, VB.NET, SQL, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, JQueryUI, Ajax, and others. During this time I have worked in different coding environments employing Visual Studio, Microsoft SQL Server, and others.

Creative Passion

A program is no good to anyone if the user is unable or unwilling to use it. Therefore, I have taken the time to educate myself in design aesthetics as well as the psychology of the users. Through this I have found a passion for providing a clean, simple to use, unique experience. I make a point to offer users an appealing interface which is both pleasing to the eye and easy to understand. Additionally, I have studied physical interaction design, how 3D principles differ from traditional 2D design concepts, and how both of those design conventions can be applied to virtual reality content.

Talk is cheapbut experience doesn't lie

Anyone can learn to codebut an education is so much more

I developed an interest in computers and technology early in life after my parents enrolled me in a class designed to give pre-kindergarten children a head-start on using technology. As time went on, that interest grew and I became more entranced with the power of computers. By age 13 I wrote my first program, a simple application in TI-BASIC, that allowed a user to have a short back-and-forth conversation with their graphing calculator. I taught myself this language by glancing at a brief "add two numbers together" tutorial and figuring out the rest by learning keywords. The following year I wrote my first useful program: a determinant solver for 3-by-3 matrices. My sophomore year in high school I signed up for my first Computer Science course thinking it was a class on computer hardware. I unexpectedly found myself immersed in the world of programming and knew I found my passion. After making the Computer Science UIL team as a Junior, I later became both team captain and coach the following year. In my time with the team we placed first in the district, first in the region, and were a top contender at the state level competition. I also learned the basics of web development my senior year while simultaneously acting as a teacher for the introductory level computer science class.

In college at The United States Naval Academy, I majored in Computer Science and earned the position of Information Systems Liaison Officer for my Company. I was a member of the United States Naval Academy's Cyber Warfare Team, a group who studies computer security and competes in contests with other military service academies including the United States Military Academy at West Point, the United States Air Force Academy, and the United States Coast Guard Academy. After leaving the Navy, I competed in a event called "HackEd" run by the University of Texas at Tyler Ingenuity Center. I placed in a top slot at the competition and accepted a job as a developer with them. I worked with The Ingenuity Center for over a year and was involved in numerous projects including publishing my first web application, Staff Analyzer.

I graduated from The University of Texas at Tyler with a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science. I now live in Austin, Texas and have previously worked as a Software Engineer in the area. While in Austin, I have participated in multiple game-jams, including the first ever HTC Vive game-jam. Recently, I became one of the first Unity Certified Developers and have been creating virtual reality content for devices such as the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Leap Motion, and Microsoft Kinect using the Unity 3D game engine.

I am currently interested in finding a full-time position as a Software Engineer working on 3D applications, videogames, or web applications.
