My commercial programming career started at a Durban ( South Africa ) based simulation company called Thoroughtec. There i was mainly responsible for physics related programming behind advanced real life simulations. With the games industry being small in South Africa, this was about as close as i could get to working in my dream job. Thereafter i moved to the Netherlands, taking a Game Programmer position at Codeglue. Here my coding skills have really grown due to a very dynamic environment and exposure to more technologies and more design decisions.
