• About Me

    Software Engineer/Gameplay Programmer

    I'm a Senior studying Computer Science (Games) at the University of Southern California with a minor in Interactive Media and Game Design.

    I like making games.

     

    All engineers start with tearing things apart and putting them up together. For me, it's that for games. I have a serious passion for video games for as long as I could remember, not just playing them, but wondering and figuring out how they work and what could be done to make them better. Thanks to my coursework I was able to get exposure from some of the most brilliant people in the industry. I've got experiences ranging from building up my own engine and designing sophisticated yet extendable systems to managing memories optimally and making a fun shader runs better; at the end, I was even lucky enough to lead my own engineering team in my project. I enjoyed doing all of the above, not just the doing part, but the learning part. Hobby wise, besides video games(obviously), I'm an avid reader and enthusiast for history, especially before the early modern period. I can talk about William the Conqueror for an entire afternoon.

    Zynga

    Summer 2018

    Software Engineer Intern

    Working on Hit it Rich, one of the leading mobile slots game on both AppStore and Google play store, I co-developed one of its major content updates "Rich Collection" during summer. Besides that, I was also tasked with some major refactors of the codebase including server-client communications and automated testing systems with favorable results in performance and modularity.

    One Hand Clapping

    Spring 2018

    Gameplay Engineer

    One Hand Clapping is an incredibly unique 2D puzzle platformer that invites you to sing into a microphone to solve musical puzzles. As a gameplay engineer, I was mainly in charge of the implementation and maintenance of multiple puzzles in the game along with stability focused tasks and interfacing between puzzles and audio input translation.
