about me

I was born, and spent my formative years, in a small Austrian town, near Vienna. As an 8 year old, my family and I moved to New York City. During my 9 nears in New York, I fell in love with the worlds of technology and gaming. I built my first PC, took a variety of Computer Science courses in school, and began my first foray into game programming, with Unity. Along with that, I gained a strong mathematical background, and built diverse friendships in International School.  Ultimately, I decided I'd pursue games as a career, starting my B.S. in Game Programming, at Champlain College in Burlington, VT. Currently in my Senior year, my love remains strong, and I fully hope to remain on this path.

Besides video games, I love reading, cooking, and playing and watching a variety of sports. Along with programming and math, I enjoy topics like history and economics.
