My full name is Rodrigo but most people know me as Rod. I am a recent graduate student Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center (ETC). Part of my education at the ETC has been to focus on communicating with multidisciplinary teams. I've combined my background in Computer Science and mathematics with my ETC experience to better understand and assist artist with tools, shaders, and script development for a wide variety of platforms and applications.
I spend my time creating and better understanding effects, programming, and playing games. My preferences in games range from strategic games to more heavily themed and narratively based ones.
