Overview

Seeking a position constructing cross-platform developer SDKs. Knowledgeable about data-driven design for rapid iteration, working in small teams, and being a highly independent abstract-problem solver. I want to make great tools that developers enjoy using.

Work Experience

Microsoft - Software Engineer

Jun ‘15 - (Current)

  • Crunched large amounts of data for processing and visualization (SQL, U-SQL, KendoUI).
  • Built extensions when existing tools lacked functionality (U-SQL extensions, C# applications).
  • Designed, architected, and maintained several general-purpose, high-impact data streams.
  • Made servicing decisions based on the results of the data sets (filed bugs, monitored releases).

 
Open Source

OpenSK - Cross-Platform Streaming Toolkit

May ‘16 - (Current)

  • Creating utilities using the API as it is being developed to understand impact of API design decisions.
  • Became proficient with Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA), PCM streams, general sound architecture.

RefN - Cross-Platform C++ Reflection eNgine

Feb ‘16 -  (Current)

  • Automated reflection registration via provided tools, which allow reflection to generate pre-build.
  • Supports hooking into build system to only generate reflection when changes are detected.


School Projects

Karma - Modern OpenGL Framework

Jan ‘15 - Apr ‘15

  • A configurable multi-pass deferred renderer with class encapsulations of the OpenGL API.
  • Physically Based Rendering, Image Based Lighting, Filmic Tonemapping (via. Naughty Dog).
  • Per-Fragment Motion Blur, Area Lights, SSAO, Soft Shadows, swappable BRDF subroutines.
  • Published technical documents outlining implementation (http://www.trentreed.net/topics/opengl/).

Ping - 3D Perception-Based Horror

Jul ‘13 -  Jul ‘14

  • Wrote a reflection system that allowed deeper type-introspection of C++ classes.
  • Leveraged reflection system for easy Lua interfacing (types, function, methods, C++/Lua binding).
  • Created a cross-platform, type-safe, hot-swappable resource management system.

Demon Drum - 2D Atmospheric Puzzle

Sept ‘12 - Apr‘13

  • Created a component-based engine so that developers could work within their own systems.
  • Architected the event system for easy registration of events allowing for easier code decoupling.
  • Created the level parsing for quick serialization and deserialization of game scenes.


School

DigiPen Institute of Technology - Redmond, WA

Bachelors of Science in Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation

  • Magna Cum Laude, Student of the Year (2014), Dean’s List (several)

Aug ‘11-May ’15
