Professional Summary
I am Morgan Skillicorn, a fourth-year Game Design and Production student at Abertay University. I am particularly interested in tools design and systems design which I have chosen to specialise in during my final year honours project. I will soon be graduating from Abertay and am looking forward to making my mark in the industry. I have always been interested in the systems that work behind the scenes in games and have always tried to understand how they work which has driven me to this area of the industry. I have a strong understanding of C# and object-oriented programming and a keen interest in various aspects of game design.
