This page contains a list of some of the projects I have worked on.

Unanounced project Mar 2017
I am currently working on an unanounced project at Asobo Studio.
The Last Frontier Jul 2016 - Mar 2017
I have worked for 9 month on "The Last Frontier", an upcoming MMORPG from Asobo Studio currently at Alpha status.

As a Gameplay programmer, I was responsible for creating new gameplay mechanics following designs from the Game Designer.
I was also responsible for day-to-day debugging and improvements.
Search for a Star Jan 2016 - Apr 2016
I joined the Search for a Star competition in Early 2016. This was a competitions designed to test the coding (C++, C#) skills of ~600 contestants in order to find out the very best, who would then be offered positions in Video Games studios.

This competition first had an HackerRank C++ test, followed by a 2 weeks game programming challenge, which was designed to reduce the number of contestant to just 5 people.

The final was held at the Microsoft HQ and was an interview by a panel of 7 experienced industry experts.

I was lucky enough to go to the finals, and ended up as the runner up.

Grads in Game, which organised this competition, has created a documentary regarding this competition in which I am featured. You can find it on youtube.
Developer at Hackney ICT Oct 2012 - May 2015
During my studies at City University of London, I entered the Professional Pathway program.

This allowed me to join a company in which I worked 4 days a week, the last day being spent at University.

I joined a branch of the Hackney council which was responsible for creating and maintaining services and applications to be used by other Hackney employees and residents.

While working at Hackney, I was given a very wide range of responsabilities, such as creating and modifying existing web application in C# using the .NET Framework, maintaining and upgrading the main Hackney Website, and providing support for the older systems still in use.

In addition, I was part of very big migration project in which the document management system and the OS used in the council were all to be upgraded, which required us to modify a number of exisiting applications to match the new APIs.
