I'm a third year student at the University of Sheffield, studying Computer Science. I am interested in analysing, making, and of course playing games. My university course allows me to expand upon my hobby, and learn new methods and techniques to explore.
I'm particularly interested in web development, games design and graphics.
I am a very active person with an interest in a variety of sports (especially football and basketball), and a particular focus on the fitness area as I believe it promotes one’s good health and self-esteem. It has also helped me discover and develop concentration and discipline, skills which are important in everyday life, but can also be used effectively in the workplace.

What would a world without friction look like? How would it work? This game explores this concept, while challenging the player with mental puzzles through all 30 levels! The aim is to get get to the goal while avoiding being eaten or lost, and to collect a maximum amount of points along the way!

This project was a result of collaboration of me and my course mates, during a 24 hour programming tournament. It challnges the user to hit a target, avoiding obstacles in space, with tricky gravitational fields and misleading paths. The game received an award for one of the best technical solutions of the challenge.

I'm a very strong comminucator, expressing myself clearly and confidently both on paper, and verbally. I'm also very happy to talk in front of large groups or give presentations
If I don't know something, I'll go and learn it! I'm quick at picking up new things and enjoy the new experience
I'm not always right! Realising this helps me work in teams and take on board other ideas, working effectively to produce better results
