Sr. Software Engineer, Game Developer, Space Cadet
My name is Jérôme and I am a French Native who moved to the United State when I was 18 years old. I was in a program as an exchange student for learning English - where I followed one year of high school in Michigan. Since I was having such a great time I decided to stay and continue my study in a community college for another 4 years where I acquired my Associates degrees in Art and Science at Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City, MI. I decided to pursuit my study in California where I ended finishing my Bachelor of Science in Applied Computer Graphics which correspond to 3D animation and modeling at California State University, Chico, CA. I am 30+ years old and I got married in 2009 to my wife and we have 2 daughters. I currently live in the San Francisco Bay area. I enjoy; going to museums, technical conferences, archery, hiking, creating useful websites and apps, problem solving, and working on my projects. I have always been an Astronomy hobbyist and a Science Fiction fan. I am an entrepreneur at heart and I am always tinkering and thinking about new web applications or projects in relation to educating and entertaining which I strongly believe can be mutually mixed. I am currently building a project called Spaceship Adventure which is a space game simulation where a team of 4 players work/play together to learn and have fun about space sciences.
