Job Experience

Summary

I have been coding games professionally for over 14 years (started in 2002). Shipped titles for 7 platforms - Gameboy Advance, J2ME, Windows, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. During my career, I worked as tools, engine, rendering, gameplay and network programmer. I have also been a lead programmer for several years (and learned I'm more interested in coding than managing). These days I'm usually going back and forth between game and engine teams. Permanent resident of Canada, citizen of Poland (EU passport).
