What's your favorite gif?
I'm currently pursuing an M.S. in Games and Playable Media at UC Santa Cruz, where I'm gaining lots of hands-on experience with game development in a small studio-style capstone team. Formerly an Inference Software Developer at FlexLogix. I earned a B.S.H. at Stanford Univeristy, majoring in Symbolic Systems.
Could I see a copy of your résumé?
Glad you asked! You can find it here.
Thanks! What else do you like to get into?
On a lighter note, I also really like:

👋👋 Hi! I'm Jñani -- a game dev student at UCSC and programmer with a passion for
gameplay systems and bringing game characters to life. Welcome to my portfolio!
Mini simulation game where you negotiate with NPCs to barter for fruits and veggies!
Playful sandbox game where you sit in the back of class, play with paper, and toss things at your fellow naughty classmates!
Monster battling game where you assemble your monsters from plant parts and duel on a grand stage!
This is part of a larger project that I am hoping to have playable soon. You can see my pitch for this project here! (Pitching this was really fun.)
Global game jam - Battle robots and use their parts & abilities for yourself!
Infinite runner style mobile game!
An NPC AI framework that uses a linguistic modeling and context-free grammars to parse sentences, store knowledge, deduce information, and plan, all using human readable sentences.
Thank you for reading through! Game development has been a lifelong passion of mine. Older projects I developed, games made with GameMaker, are archived and playable on my itch.io profile.
These are very early work but are part of my history as a developer. Sucky Mouse is my favorite!

Wow, why so much AI and procgen?
For me, those areas have been in a good sweet spot of my technical, game design, and research interests. I came from a background of non-game AI research, and many of these projects leverage that background.
Thanks! With every project, I aim to learn something new and build something creative. I'm proud of what I've done so far, but I'm also really excited for what's to come!
Lastly, how can I get in touch with you?
I'm most responsive via email, you can reach me at email@example.com! Thank you for coming by! 👋👋
