Hello there! I'm Jean-Paul Peschard. I am a Computer Engineer/Game Developer currently enrolled in the Game Engineering track in the EAE Master's program of the University of Utah.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the ITAM (Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico), having finished a thesis in serious games. While studying there I worked on small team-based games for mobile platforms. Later on, I further pursued my interest in games at VFS (Vancouver Film School) where I specialized in Game Design. I have an ever-growing passion to implement amazing new game mechanics to yield unforgettable player experiences. I use my Computer Science background to understand and communicate effectively my designs to other technical team members to optimize and quickly iterate on a game's experience.
Outside of making games, I am a huge movie fan and am strongly inclined to sci-fi and horror genres. I enjoy practicing martial arts and rocking on my guitar and drums.
