Graphics - I've implemented a total of five graphics engines including:
3D hardware shader basred rasterizer using DirectX for a game with
techniques such as Phong illumination from multiple point lights, HDR
bloom, a form of vertex motion blur and even a full screen blur effect
to make the menus prettier. I am still implementing new effects for
this, currntly I am attempting heat shimmer effect, both as a full
screen effect for the level with lava everywhere and an effect for
particles on torches and any other fires in the game. After that I will
be working on Extruded Volumetric Shadows and HDR Tone Mapping to
improve the lighting scheme a bit.
3D software rasterizer using openGL emulating the full graphics
pipeline and added effects of bump mapping and parallax mapping
a 3D software rasterizer using windows GDI
a ray tracer using windows GDI
a 2D software rasterizer using windows GDI
Has implemented lighting schemes such as Phong illumination and Gourad shading.
Has implemented advanced graphical effects such as HDR Bloom, full screen heat
shimmer, and parallax occlusion mapping
Physics - I have written three physics engines, one 2D the others 3D. Has applied or helped
integrate physics code into a total of five projects or games.
Sound - I have written a 3D sound engine in FmodEx.
A.I. - I have written the base behavior and structure of enemy units for one game
I have strong math skills in calculus, linear algebra, and Bezier Curves

Completely Unrelated Skills: Thats right, I am capable of more than just programming :-P
can hand make electric guitars and basses. I used to do this with a
friend in Texas. We start from a block of wood for the body, if we want
a layered look, we laminate several sheets of wood together to make a
new block. Next we cut out the overall shape of the body and carve the
details. (below are some of the guitars I have made)
can design and install sound and lighting systems meant for Home
Theatres and Clubs. I used to be an apprentice electricion in Texas.
