Biography

I am a game developer who graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Game Programming at LaSalle College in March 2021. Before that, I also have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Brazil. Since my childhood, I have been passionate about games and I have decided to change my career to follow this path. I love to play all kinds of games from FPS, strategy, action, and adventure in my spare time and observe and enjoy the different mechanics that these games bring. Something that keeps me motivated is my curiosity about how one can turn simple ideas into enjoyable gameplay experiences in the game development process.
