EDUCATION

mediagymnasiet logo 2013-2016 Mediagymnasiet Game Design - Esthetic program

This program had a heavy focus on game design and project management. We got the chance to create games from scratch, including everything from brainstorming, prototyping, planning, working together, sticking to deadlines, delivering finished products.

During my school time at Mediagymnasiet I read extra courses of programming and mathematics. I received the grade A in programming 1 and 2 as well as in mathematics 1b, 2b, 3b, and 4.

KNOWLEDGE

Programming

C# LUA GML C++ PHP Python Javascript HTML CSS GIT Cg/HLSL SQL Java

Chronologically ordered from a lot- (green) to a little bit (red) of knowledge.

I began programming at a very young age, starting with writing simple websites with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. As years went by I got into game development and tried out engines like GameMaker and LÖVE, which is where I picked up the majority of the languages I know today. For example, I researched and learnt to use the basics Cg/HLSL just for Unity.

I have a passion for programming, but also in learning. I love spending time researching in documentations to find the most optimal solution.
