🚀 Hello and welcome to my site! 💻

I like to make computer graphics, software, and video games

📜 About Me

Howdy! I'm Kyle, and I'm a software engineer based in the San Jose, CA area. I'm a senior college student at the University of Silicon Valley, where I'm getting my Bachelor's of Science in Game Design Engineering, and plan on graduating at the end of 2021! I'm currently working at Crown Consulting as a NASA Software Engineer intern developing really cool tools for engineers. 😎

My concentration is with computer graphics, rendering with OpenGL, low-level programming with C++, and game development. I've taken part in the Global Game Jam and various other jams, have worked in small tech startups with friends, and am always working on small side projects to increase my skills and learn the newest technology!

When I'm not programming though, you can catch me participating in competitive Esports, weightlifting, hiking some of the nearby trails, or eating some great local food (especially tacos). I enjoy video editing on the side when I can get around to it, and have a knack for martial arts.
