As the senior software engineer at this current company, I've taken part in eight major releases, in addition to our turn-based immunology strategy game, ImmuneQuest. I've had my hands in every part of it: simulation scripting, expanding and porting our platform and frameworks, managing databases, administering our web servers, and everything else necessary to keep things moving forward.

Our apps are interactive and educational 3D simulations. We have covered many topics in medical biology, and our current project is a turn-based strategy game focused on all aspects of the immune system. We've used the Gamebryo game engine and the Ogre 3D renderer.
