I'm interested in writing C++ backend (engine) systems and would like to grow to be an Engine Programmer.

There is an archive of projects I have worked on, ranging from game-development, web-development, game jams and anything related to programming. If you're hungry for me, take a look!
Modern C++ 11 to 17
My preferred language used for game (engine) related projects. Ranging from developing gameplay features, network code, working on front and back end systems.
C# 4.0 to 7.0
All of the Unity projects I have worked on are writen in this language which are all sorts of gameplay features. Next to that I have written small tools for myself.
The first years of me 'programming' was by using Lua, which has stayed around with me to be used to allow for gameplay scripting in engines I have worked on.
Mainly used to create web-end server functionality to give the game more flavour such as leaderboards, data gathering and setting and logging into a game server.
Within or for a team I ensure that my communication is on a level that is expected and ask and provide whenever this is would be required.
Every project has many oppertunities to learn something different or new about a subject you know. This is why I take any challenge to give myself new knowledge to use in a project.
When working in a team I want myself to be a person people can rely upon, always being open for feedback, questions or opinions to share on a professional or casual level depending on the situation.
I can delivery what others want based on requests and expectations, but to really get the most value out of my work I ask frequently for feedback on my progress and experiences on my deliverables.
Dealing with blocks or setbacks requires a healhty amount of dedication and willing to not give up. I always try to find a solution to a problem by doing research and proper debugging.

Starting off with scripting in games when I was fourteen, I loved to create experiences for friends and later for increased audiences. After gaining some experience in web/app development I switched towards gameplay programming.
Now I am a Game programmer with a range of programming skills and game-development experiences that I have gained while working on a range of games together with a multi-disciplinary team and on my own.
During a project I have built frameworks, organized production pipelines, created development tools and with implemented game features with a focus on maintainable and modular code.
