Hello, I’m Ben. I am a third year Computer Games Technology student, studying at the University of Portsmouth.
I am an avid gamer, and have been since I was 9 year old. This passion for games led me to deciding to pursue games design as a career, which is why I have chosen to study a specialist course in games technology.
In my first year of university, I independently learned Unity 3D outside of my course and am currently using it to develop my own personal projects, as well as my programming units in my final year. In addition, I have strong knowledge of both C++ and C#, as well as using source control with Git.
As part of my Computer Science A-level I started learning C and Java, at university I have been coding in C++ since my first year. This along with my skills in other C based languages provided enough knowledge to independently learn C# for use in Unity 3D with my personal projects.
During my time at university I have been involved in several group projects each year and taken part in a Game Jam team, helping me to develop strong interpersonal, team working and communication skills, working to a strict deadline. My other experiences include knowledge of DirectX 11, Unreal Engine 4’s blueprint system, modelling, rigging and UV unwrapping in Autodesk 3DS Max and graphic design in Adobe Photoshop.
