I’m a 28 year-old software developer with 10 years experience living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. At 15 I opened an online-Flash game studio called Throw The Project; releasing titles on Addicting Games, Kongregate, Newgrounds and more. The most notable work is the Modern Tactics series.
This funded my education where I got a degree in game development. On graduation I moved to the web and developed HTML5 games, even created a game engine, then ultimately shifted towards the startup world with Ruby on Rails.
I’m a definite believer in test-driven development, scrum, code reviews, continuous integration, UI first development and pair programming.
I write valuable software with a keen eye on quality, no pull request should be opened without a test.
KISS is my motto – Keep it simple software – Correct is better than fast. Simple is better than complex. Clear is better than cute. Safe is better than insecure.
Open-source software is something I believe in and am an active maintainer on various projects – most notably Darkstar Project, been part of it for more than 5 years, a project with over 120 contributors.
After all these years game development is still my passion. In 2007 I founded Throw the Project, an Flash game studio. Now it’s focus is desktop and browser games.
Some times I stream on Twitch, usually related to game dev work.
When not programming, I’m either reading books, studying Mandarin, looking for new exciting indie titles or exercising. If you’re working on a title please tweet me I’ll love to see it.
