About Me
This is the blog of a gentleman named Bert, I am Irish man currently living in Scotland and working as an independent developer, freelancer.
I am a well rounded software engineer that can adapt to the ever changing development environment.

Most of my work revolves around the development of games, though in recent years I have started branching out and making software applications. In the past I have worked on an assortment of devices including the Playstation 2, Playstation 3, XBox, XBox 360, XBox One, Windows, iOS, OSX and have held a wide variety of positions from being an AI Programmer, Engine Developer, Character Programmer, Software Engineer, Technical Director, Contractor, etc.

I am fairly approachable and will try to help fellow developers out where I can. You can find me out and about most Wednesdays evenings just come along and look for the guy wearing a trilby. Alternatively you can email me or send me a message via twitter.
