Hello there and welcome to my profile page!

I love all fields of game design, but my true passions are system design, level design and scripting. All the possibilities that you have to challenge the players by doing a good level design or system design is so exiting and fun. Scripting is also be very interesting. I compare it to a puzzle that can be solved in many ways. And solving that puzzle in the most efficient way is something I can't get enough of.


My skills:

  • C#. Multiple projects in unity (cube game).
  • Lua. Multiple projects in love2d (space arena, wave simulator).
  • SourcePawn. Plugins for sourcemod (Half Life 2 scripting).
  • Php, css, html, mysql. Web sites with login systems, encoding queues for films and upload functions (dalavision.selevelexpose.com)...
  • Level design. Custom maps for different Counter-Strike games (battle royale mod for CSGO).
  • Adobe Photoshop.
  • FMOD.
  • Project management.
  • Ubuntu. Backup systems, web servers, video encoding with ffmpeg, automated virus scans with clamdscan, game servers...

In my spare time:

  • Playing games.
  • Creating websites.
  • Scripting games in unity or love2d.
  • Creating levels for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. 
  • Writing songs, singing, playing the guitar.
  • Canoeing and exploring new places in nature with friends.
  • Walking on my slackline.
  • Socializing with friends while playing cards, D&D or different board games.
