Overview

Seeking a position where I can effectively apply my expertise in software development, as well as learn and collaborate with others to continue my growth and experience new technologies. I’m a highly independent abstract-problem solver, with experience in low-level systems programming, and a knack for being able to understand and document existing complex systems.

Work Experience

ArenaNet - Software Engineer

Sep ‘17 - Feb ‘19

Servicing & Support:

  • Quickly took ownership over the Guild Wars 2 MacOS client for continued support and servicing.
  • Improved performance of the MacOS client by a large margin; fixed numerous bugs and I/O issues.
  • Owned the servicing for large parts of the Guild Wars 2 codebase (core engine, graphics, major tools, etc.)
  • Fixed complex content pipeline and graphics-hardware related issues (OpenGL and DirectX9).

Communication & Collaboration:

  • Self-motivated to handle task triaging and work item organization for planning and review.
  • Collaborated with other teams to provide service and support for tools that artists and designers used.
  • Communicated effectively through internal blogs, detailed technical write-ups, and documentation.
  • Tailored cross-discipline communication towards the target audience (artists, designers, QA, leads, etc).

Microsoft - Software Engineer

Jun ‘15 - Sep ‘17

Build & Packaging:

  • Working with Azure technologies to enable internal services (Cloud Storage, REST APIs, Automation).
  • Deployed planned and hotfixed changes under multiple environments for our internal packaging system.
  • Designed and implemented an API for tracking and reporting packaging payloads (C#, SQL Server).
  • Delegated and gave feedback on multiple features based on payload API (design, review, feedback).

Data & Analytics:

  • Crunched large amounts of data for processing and visualization (SQL, U-SQL, KendoUI).
  • Built extensions for missing features in existing tools (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

KASM - A Virtual Microprocessor Assembler and Simulator

  • Designed and developed a virtual microprocessor based on 6502 (cycle-accurate simulation).
  • Created  a custom instruction set for the circuit, and as such a custom assembler to assemble with.

OpenSK - Open-Source Cross-Platform Sound Toolkit

  • Designed and developed an API for low-level sound library abstraction (ALSA, WASM, Core Audio).
  • Iterated on API specifications as more intricacies of the abstraction become apparent.

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
