My name is Robert Parrell and I am a Game Programmer currently studying at The Game Assembly. I used to be an electronics engineer but I recently got the opportunity to take a chance on a new career path and decided to take it.
I have absolutely loved learning how to program games and everything surrounding the design and development of them. During my education we have done many game projects in teams from all disciplines at the school (art, tech art, level design, and of course programming) and in doing so I have learned a lot about Agile methodology, Scrum, and the importance of communication to make sure the team works towards the same vision.
In these projects I have found myself taking on a generalist role most of the time. It is something I have come to enjoy and has allowed me to dabble in gameplay, tools, engine, and graphical programming.
For me personally I live in Dalby in Skåne with my wife and our two kids. In my free time I enjoy playing video games, streaming on twitch, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and weekend activities with my family.
I am currently looking for an internship to cap off my education starting on the 2nd of September 2019, so if what I've written sounds interesting or left you with any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me through the links below my picture.
