About Anomalous Online

Personal

Growing up in the 80's, I was surrounded by people who loved computers, but for some reason I didn't take to them; I liked sports. In fact, it was the mid to late 90's before I learned how to use one.

32 bit graphics were already mainstream by the time I'd begun learning to code, so I had a lot of catching up to do. As it happened, programming was well suited to a background in science, so it wasn't long before I was coding 3d software engines, databases and everything in between.

I like all programming, but particularly like coding games and graphics related disciplines. Like most kids growing up in the 80's, a decent amount of my time was spent playing arcade games like Galaxian, Galaga, 1942, Pacman, Frogger and many others, and they have largely influenced the style of games that I prefer making.

In addition, I like to keep tabs on the demoscene from afar and I occasionally like to acquire domain names to tuck away for future development. At present, I have a few projects on the go, of which, anomalous.com is just one.

Skill set?

Like many people who like graphics programming, I'm formally trained in the sciences; In my case, Maths and Physics.

For the most part, I can code in all the languages that matter (with a preference for C++) and am pretty comfortable with databases, webdesign, SEO, etc.
