About

About Me
I am a hardworking, dedicated individual who thrives in a positive working environment comprised of good structure, processes & responsibility. My work in games programming has made me a fan of efficiency, thus I encourage learning new methods of finishing the job, especially those which improve overall performance. Additionally my experience in retail has taught me about money handling, how to engage customers and troubleshoot with them to find their need, but most importantly of all; team communication.

My personal interests include; The Sciences – mainly Philosophy & Psychology, Computer hardware and of course; video games!
