personal statement

Hi,
I am new to CodePlex. I am looking for a project in game design to contribute to. I am interested in gaining some experience in game design by doing some hands on learning and, at the same time, helping out with the CodePlex community projects. I am passionate about game design and I aspire one day to have enough experience to design a game of my own.

I am a Ph.D. in Astrophysics, B.Sc. in Physics and Applied Mathematics. I know I may have a very different background from most software developers and game designers, but I have good programming and technical writing skills. My favourite languages are Python and C. Nowadays, I am interested in developing my Java skills further.

I am not a native speaker but I have good English skills. I've been working in research in international environments for near 10 years where English is the first language. Mastering the English language is necessary to publish and communicate research findings to the scientific community. English is the language I speak at home as well. I am married to a native speaker and we live in an English speaking country. I am fluent in other 3 languages: Portuguese, French and Spanish.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Operating systems: Unix/Linux, Windows.
Languages: Python, C/C++, Java, Fortran and Pascal.
Others: HTML/CSS, Javascript, Bash-script.
Software: Inkscape, Gimp, Blender, Open office, Emacs, Latex

Looking for ways to gain experience as: Software develper/programmer, technical writer and/or scientific consultant.
