    Experienced Corona Mobile Game and App Programmer with Benefits

    United States - Portfolio: 7

    Hello! I'm an experienced and published mobile app and game developer. I've primarily used the Corona SDK for my cross platform game development. I've worked extensively on: * Box2D physics * Many of the Corona plugins (analytics, Facebook, all Ad platforms, etc.) * Cloud services (AppWave and App42, etc.) * Real-time multiplayer * In-app Purchasing * Push notifications * Advertising monetization (video, banner, interstitial, incentive) * Data storage (SQLite, JSON, cloud) Aside from coding, I also do quite a bit of drawing for basic graphic assets. I've done 100% of the assets for each of my games. I wouldn't call my design abilities a core strength rather a supporting ability where I can draw UI controls, basic sprites, etc. without the need for an artist. I'm available full time or as needed starting any time. No preference for team size or project stage. I work well with small or large teams and don't mind jumping into an existing codebase or starting from scratch. As for the **benefits**, I also have an existing codebase for general services that I don't mind reusing (with no licensing attached). Services include: * Complete In-App purchasing store * Real-time multiplayer framework * Push notifications and deep linking * Cloud based promotional services * Progression features including player profiles, leveling, perks and rewards, etc. * Facebook Login integration * Analytics Prior to the recent time I've spent developing games, I worked as a lead engineer in the mobile telecom world for over 12 years as a server side enterprise Java developer and SDK/tools developer. **Portfolio** I have 15 games published on the Google Play store, and 15 on the App Store as well. These games were all solo projects. I've done all design, development, and publishing.

    Experienced Games Designer and iOS Programmer

    United Kingdom - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

    I'm a games designer and programmer with 10 years experience making top end console games and mobile apps. I worked for Bizarre Creations as a games designer and main document architect for over 7 years, producing titles such as Project Gotham Racing 2, 3 and 4 and Blur. My main responsibilities where to write and maintain the design bible for each project, which was the go to resource for all design related information about the game. The document was used by up to 150 people in the team to make the actual game. I was also responsible for the creation of game levels and game modes inside each of the projects. I was in charge of the difficulty balancing of the game, utilising analytics and focus groups to hone each level in the game to its greatest potential. After leaving Bizarre Creations due to the closure of the studio I went to work in the mobile industry for a company called Moshen. Whilst at Moshen I was again responsible for the creation and maintenance of all app related documentation as well as becoming an experienced programmer. I worked on a number of applications in that capacity including apps for companies such as Breville and Brother. I was involved in a number of top applications, the most prominent of which being Darts Night where I was the lead designer and which achieved over 2 million downloads worldwide. Since the companies closure I have since turned to freelance work and have produced my own iOS applications which have been released on the App Store. These include The Great Big Rock Quiz, The Great Big World Football Quiz and Octogram.

    I have an ablility to write well on many subjects resulting from my varied work background and my wide breadth of interests.

I've worked as a freelance engineering patent abstractor, I've designed environmental education worksheets and, as a social care manager, have written formal reports and summaries. In social care, I obtained an MSc in Social Work, further evidence of my spread of skills, and my ability to organise and achieve as during my dissertation, I was working full-time. Outside this, as well as gaming, reading and gardening (although my idea of gardening is somewhat Darwinian), I have a gaming blog. I also contribute to many forums for discussion and ideas. Overall, I'm goal orientated, my word is my bond and good work a priority
