:: WORK EXPERIENCE ::
Associate Gameplay Programmer
Feb. 2020 - June 2020
Recruited for additional engineering support on an upcoming VR title built in Unreal Engine 4.
Junior Software Engineer
Sept. 2018 - Jan. 2020
Beginning as an engineer intern in July, I was brought on full-time to continue my work on The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, an action-adventure VR title built in Unreal Engine 4.
C and Assembly Programming TA
As a grader, I was responsible for validating output of students' programs, and manually reviewing their code printouts to provide feedback on correctness, conceptual understanding, and style.
Research Assistant - Twitter Project
I performed exploratory statistical analysis on a large dataset of tweets using Python, pandas, and Hadoop MapReduce jobs. My main task was to write reusable scripts to compare word frequencies over time between tweets with and without a specified hashtag, and format their combined output for easy visualization using Matplotlib.
Junior 2D Game Design TA
I supervised and assisted in instruction for a summer workshop on game design and development to a class of about thirty 4th to 7th grade students. The goal of the course was for each student to build a simple game using one of DigiPen's proprietary C++ frameworks.
The majority of the students had no prior experience programming, so along with coordinating lesson plans with the primary instructor and other assistants, I was responsible for actively reviewing students' work to ensure that they would successfully reach milestones for their projects.
