ABOUT

About

For as long as I can remember, creation and puzzle solving have been my passions. These two interests met halfway, and have steered me down the forbidden path of the programmer. As a programmer, whether it be patching that one error, creating animation import tools, or creating a two player UI input system, my mind and heart are content! I have been coding for eight years, and from the beginning I have consistently proven to be a strong worker that will get the job done. Throughout my journey, I have worked in C#, C++, Java, and HTML. I have experience in Unity and Unreal Engine 4. Evan's Programming Repository features the finest examples of my work.
