Hello Everyone

My name is Travis Stewart and I am a software developer interested in game development and web technologies. I have primarily used the libGDX Java game development framework and Unity game engine, but I am always working to pick up knowledge of new technologies. I have experience programming in C/C++, C#, Java, JavaScript and jQuery, and have some knowledge of PHP and Perl. My background is varied; I have worked on everything from large particle physics experiments and mass spectrometry, to technical writing.

My non-technical interests include a strong, if unfocused, interest in history. I enjoy the history of the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc countries, and have long been interested in the history, language, and culture of Japan (I took three Japanese language courses while an undergrad and really must get back to improving my language skills). Along with my historical interest I am also fascinated by folklore and storytelling, aspects I would like to incorporate into gaming. Finally, I greatly appreciate photography and art, especially night photography. Some examples of my photography can be seen on my Deviant Art profile.
