Who am I?

Once upon a time...just kidding! Well, allow me to skip the deep ontological question and break the ice by giving you the short answer, instead: you, my reader, can call me Dan. Considering myself a jack of all trades, I diverge from the notion that specialization in one field is the sole path in the games industry. Instead, I find inspiration in the words of my good ol' friend William Shakespeare and his quote: A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.

There are mainly TWO facts I want you to know about me:

  • I am an avid gamer (and a sore loser - only when it comes to Rocket League, though...I swear!)
  • Self-proclaimed digital artist
  • Oh, almost forgot! I am first and foremost a game developer.


Last but not least, feel free to grab a copy of my CV before scrolling further down.

Ever since I moved to Brighton in 2012, at the age of 17 and without ever having spoken English before, I have been keeping track of all the academic qualifications (however important they are) I have achieved so far. Doing so helps me push myself to the next level and keeps my motivation high. Alright, that's a half-truth...I am just a show-off, let's be honest.

Why is this here?

This is obviously not a qualification. However, it is something that I have been consistently doing since graduation; I have been teaching myself how to code and make games. I still consider it part of my overall education, and I have decided to put it here to show potential employers that I have not been twiddling my thumbs and that I am constantly putting in the effort.

Over the past few years, I have accomplished various milestones, including completing numerous UE4/5 and Unity courses and participating in coding challenges on platforms like HackerRank and LeetCode. In my spare time, two activities stand out as particularly significant:

  • Work on (Project OneTime) in C# and Unity
  • Create my own assets for said project in Blender

Achievement unlocked in September 2020, at University Of Brighton, England. I am particularly proud of the fact that I graduated from university during the COVID world pandemic.

I attended my first 3 out of 5 years of high school at I.T.I.S Enrico Fermi High School in Frascati (RM), Italy, until I dropped out due to my family's (out of the blue) decision to move to the UK. Here I studied computer science and the fundamentals of programming. Most importantly, it was here that I developed an even stronger bond with my best friend who has had a huge impact in what would later be my decision to pursue a career in the gaming industry.
