I am a games programmer, with some experience in 2D game art and game production, currently studying at Abertay University for a Professional Masters in Games Development. I have particular interests in gameplay programming, artificial intelligence, mobile development and virutal reality.

My love for developing games was truly found when I decided to take part in Ludum Dare for the first time some years ago. I’ve always enjoyed entertaining others, and was already doing so through my own YouTube channel, dedicated to Airsoft. The feedback I had from my first game was so empowering that I was instantly hooked on development.

I am always open to conversation regarding collaboration on potential projects, and any game oriented work. If interested drop me an email: andrew@nashdevsoft.co.uk
