Pocket Prof/Agile Onion

Android/iOS Mobile App  (Agile Onion)

Pocket Prof and Agile Onion are quiz/assessment applications I developed for a client during 2018.

Interests

Developing games like Mayor! Mayor! and Trove Ball is my true passion. Whether or not that is what I'm currently doing to keep the fridge filled I loved to play around in Unity and develop small prototypes. I also love to enjoy the games that others have made and love playing games with my friends and girlfriend.

When I'm not on my computer working or playing I enjoy watching T.V. shows like Westworld and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I also like to get outside and ski during the winter or bike during the summer.
