2002-2004

1999-2002

Project manager / Lead programmer, Newspaper DTP engine

Lead a team of between 5 and 8 programmers. In addition to my own development work on software architecture, graphics and user interfaces, I was responsible for planning, monitoring and integrating the work of the rest of the team. It was necessary for me to be involved with every aspect of the project. The programmers were from diverse technical backgrounds and locations in England, Germany and USA. The project was well established when I joined; I was tasked with co-ordinating the team to design and implement a new product, based on their previous work. I initiated new policy and procedures, such as, thorough analysis, design and documentation and guided modernisation of the team members' skills, methodologies and processes. I demonstrated the product at a tradeshow in Amsterdam.

1996-1999

Software engineer / Company director, PC game development

Created tools to import and convert map, model, animation and texture assets including palette optimisation and pre-compiling visibility occlusion. Implemented key-frame animation and interactive behaviour to specification: monsters, levers, doors, touch pads, trip-wires, force-fields, elevators, conveyor belts, crushing walls. Developed a pseudo object-oriented widget-based, graphical user interface system in C including user input, windows, input boxes, scrollable list boxes, checkboxes, radio buttons and drop down lists.
