    Unity3D Guru and Technical Writer

    United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    I have worked for three years as an independent Unity contractor, primarily in the realms of complex games and desktop & web applications. My Unity3D programming skills are nearly as good as my written and verbal English skills, which the SAT once told me were in the top .8% in the US. My gains from independent employment have paid for the >100 credits I've earned at my school. I am part-time finishing my last seventeen credits at College of Idaho (quote "Idaho's most prestigious undergrad college"), pursuing a polymath BA in Computer Science and International Political Economic Philosophy. I want to one day become an effective political activist for reform in America. My facebook handle is Political Reform Colin. [ Relelvant courses from the CofI: - C++ 1,2,3,4 - Special Programming Languages (Erlang) - C# Programming 1&2 - Mono Programming - Data Structures and Algorithms - Discrete Mathematics - Calculus 1,2,3 - Analytical Physics - Business Marketing - Small Business Management - Quantitative Analysis - Business Law. ] Though I'm new to ODesk, I'm willing to temporarily undervalue my time here in order to prove myself. Give me a call, talk to me about nerdy things, and you'll see that I know what I'm about.
