lazyeye

Professional Game Developer

about

Hey there! I'm lazyeye, or Gabe, if you prefer. I work out of the Chicagoland area making games, tools, and whatever else can grab my interest. I've been messing around with game development since a young age, and playing video games since I was even younger. I am extraordinarily passionate about this profession, and am always excited to learn new things.

While my skills range into multiple areas, such as GameMakerStudio 2, Python, JavaScript, my number one skill is my ability to learn -- everything that I know is self taught. Outside of programming, I also host a podcast called obj_podcast, and am an admin for the GameMaker Discord Server.
