About Me

Hello! I'm Joey, a software engineer based in Saint Louis, MO who loves creating interactive media. I develop games (PC/Mobile/Console), mobile apps (iOS/Android) and tools that make your life easier.

I started my programming journey when I was 15, and found that I have a passion for software development. I'm entirely self-taught and proud of it; one of my strongest skills is being able to adapt, and learn new tricks to tackle any project that comes my way.

Here are just a few things I work with:

  • C#
  • Python
  • C++
  • Unity
  • Xamarin
  • PlayStation 4
  • Nintendo Switch
  • Android (Native)
  • Git
  • PHP / JavaScript
  • HTML / CSS
  • SlimJS
