more ABOUT ME

Hello,

 

First of all, thank you for visiting my portfolio!

My name is Gwangyeong Yun. I'm currently in the second year of studying game programming at Futuregames, Stockholm. I have a 2.5 years old lovely daughter and a wife (Josefin De La Motte) who is also a programming student at Futuregames.

I have always wanted to try different things out of the ordinary. For example, I enrolled in University at age 16. Later, I achieved my goal to serve in the army as a leader instead of a regular soldier. Now, I'm trying to settle my life outside of my home country South Korea.

My previous experiences (as a leader, and a teacher) taught me not only about taking responsibility but also the importance for each individual to work together to reach a common goal. 

During my time at Futuregames, I have completed four cross-discipline team projects, which has taught me how much I love to make games and live out my passion as a programmer.

I'm so excited to dive into the game industry​ and to be a part of game development. Besides, It would be amazing to see people enjoying the game I participate in.

Now, I am ready to put in the work and develop the games of the future. Feel free to reach out to me if you want to know more about me. gwangyeong.yun@futuregames.nu

Thank you!
