About Me

About myself

I am a recent graduate from Staffordshire university, with a First Class Honors in Games Design and Programming. I have always been excited by games and it has been a dream of mine since a young age to actually make my own. After graduating, a course friend and I set out to create and publish our own mobile game. We worked for 6 months and released Sky Factory Mobile in early December.  Moving forward I would like to be part of a larger team to make something new and different that the world will enjoy. 

​​

While studying at university I have picked up enough skills to produce my own projects, and work with small teams during games jams. My preferred engine of choice is Unity3D, but i am also familiar with UE4. I am confident in using C# and have also had some experience in Java and C++.

Reference From Previous Employer

"Hopefully you are in a position whereby Connor Taylor has approached you looking for work, and has given you this reference. My advice is to pick up the phone and call him in for an interview before someone else discovers him.

 

Connor worked as a technician here at King Edward Community College for two years. He was interviewed when still a student and it was apparent even then that he had the ability and mindset to fit in and get the job done.

 

You will find that Connor will do the work of at least two people. He is a fast learner, fast walker and fast worker. His technical skills are second to none and he will pick up a system and master it before you know it. Connor presents well, is tidy, turns up when he is sick (you will need to force him to go home) and is always on time. He is happy to go the extra mile to help a colleague and has saved many people's day here.

 

Please do not waste Connor."

Work
University

King Edward VI Community College (Totnes, Devon)

After I had completed my A-Levels I decided to work for a couple years to gain some experience and maturity. I heard that an IT technician position was becoming available at the college so i decided to apply. I was then invited to attend an interview which I had to get permission to attend as it was during one of my lessons, I went in thinking i didn't have a chance but I held my head strong as I was asked question after question. 

Once the interview was over I went back to my lesson to await a phone call, to my surprise I had done more than enough and I had secured myself a job at the same school I was studying in.

I started working 3 days after my last exam and stayed for two years as i enjoyed the experience it gave me, I learnt so much more than I could ever have imagined and i will never forget my time working there. 

I applied to university whilst I was working as I still wanted to follow my dream and i was excepted by all my choices, I chose Staffordshire University as I had heard such amazing things.
