Since I was a child it has been a dream of mine to develop my own video games. Growing up I didn't have the latest console and games, but I did have some handheld consoles and always played games on them given the chance. Due to me always spending my time playing videogames on those handheld consoles I developed an interest in how those games were made. Ever since that interest I have taught myself how to make websites and small programs. Eventually I got to the age where I could decide what I wanted to learn in school, a no-brainer, I instantly knew what I wanted to study and where, Media Technology at the Grafisch Lyceum in Rotterdam.
Nurturing the feelings from the past I have grown into the developer with a love and interest for all languages. I enjoy coding stuff in PHP, HTML5, JQuery, C#, C++, Python, Java and a lot more. Some of these languages I haven't mastered as well as the others, but I enjoy working in them none the less. I always try to push myself and learn new things with each project. Even if a project is the exact same as an older one, I will still try to innovate myself and become an even better programmer.
No one can know for certain what the future may bring for us, but I hope to one day be able to call myself a fullfledged game developer, I'd like to either work for a company or start for myself as an indie developer. I would like to be able to create games that make people think, make them wonder and possibly even influence the world around us, make it a better place through videogames.
I am experienced with the following scripting/programming languages and programs.
