My Specialties1

OpenGL Logo


My starting point into programming computer games was OpenGL with C++. C++ is my favourite language but not the most common one that I use.

Unity Logo


Unity3D is my most recent development platform for developing games. Especially for smart games that need to be cross platform across multiple devices.

UE4 Logo

Unreal Engine 4

Unreal Engine 4 is the development platform I use when cutting edge graphics and performance is a key requirement.


ASP.net MVC 5 and WPF

When developing for the web, I prefer to use Microsoft Development tools. ASP.net MVC 5 and ASP.net WCF are the two technologies that are used across all my web-based projects.

Jquery Logo


Just like any web developer, I am proficient in JQuery and JavaScript, which I use for any website client side programming.

Coffe Script Logo

Coffee Script

When I write JavaScript code, I prefer to use the Coffee Script Interpreter, as in my opinion, it allows me to produce clearer code

Spotlight Projects2

Spin pop image 1

Ninja Dash

The aim of the game is to keep your ninja alive as long as possible. This is done by touching and pressing on a touchscreen to jump, float and throw shuriken.

Spin Pop

Spin Pop is my second smart phone game. Once finished, it will be released on App Stores across all major devices.

The main game play idea is to complete a set of puzzles by moving the spinning top with touch based gestures.

University Of East Anglia - Games Laboratory

For my UEA Games Laboratory team project, in which took the role of team lead, we created a multi-player RPG game using Unity3D.

It's not about ideas. It's about making ideas happen.
