Robokind

Jimmy’s love of video games began when he was a child when he played the SNES with his brothers. He’s continued playing video games and began to turn it into a career when he enrolled at the University of Texas in Austin, where he got a Management Information Systems degree. Upon graduation, he decided he wanted to try video games as a career choice. Jimmy then signed up for the game programming track.

In the program, Jimmy got experience with UDK and Unity game engines, learned C#, JavaScript, C++, Flash, Actionscript, Java, Photoshop and Objective C. In his project development classes, Jimmy worked on a Starfox clone, The Estate in UDK and Urban Zombie in Unity. He worked on mobile games and apps for various companies for years. He now works for RoboKind on apps and robots to help teach autistic children.
