std::cout << Hello World;

Hello! I am Jake, a C++ programmer with a specialization in tools programming and systems design for game development. For the past 8 years or so, I have been working for a military contractor developing training simulations using Unreal Engine 4 and Unreal Engine 5. I lead a small team of engineers and develop tools and reusable code libraries to assist my team in delivering large feature sets in rapid development cycles.

I have a strong interest in systems design and game engine architechture. In my free time, I work on a small 2D game engine called ScavEng, which I use primarily to learn more about the low-level systems that exist in most commercial engines. When time allows, I also enjoy participating in game jams.

You can find me on:


  • Unreal Engine 4/5:

    8 years experience developing tools and systems for Unreal development. Focused on creating reusable code libraries to assist a small team in VR training development for military clients. Developed automated build system with Unreal Build Tool and Jenkins.

  • C++:

    10+ years experience developing applications in C++. Proficient with Visual Studio and CMake build systems. Deep knowledge of the C++ standard library and some experience with OpenGL and DirectX graphics libraries.

  • Source Control Systems:

    10+ years experience using and administering a litany of source control systems such as git, Perforce and Plastic SCM (Unity Version control).Set up integrations with project management suites like JIRA and code review platforms such Helix Swarm.
