I've worked on shader compilers, surgery simulators, video drivers, raytracers, shading tools, lighting tools, DirectX debuggers, OpenGL ES debuggers, and graphics-intensive web applications.

As a hobby, I've also done some indie game development. In the late 90's I made a platformer called Noop's Odyssey. More recently I created the puzzle game Blockdown.
