About Me

Hi! I'm André Pascual, a game designer, programmer and graduate from the University of Southern California (USC), with a bachelors in Computer Science (Games). The USC Games Program is recognized as the #1 game design program in North America by the 2020 Princeton Review.

I recently completed a Game Design internship at Treyarch where I helped develop a Vehicle Test Map using Radiant and GSC scripting. I've also worked with multi-functional teams of up to 20+ people to create wonderful games using Unity and Unreal Engine 4. I choose to work in games because they are dynamic and constantly evolving which gives me opportunities to push myself and improve my skills as a game developer.

Aside from playing and making games I'm a nerd when it comes to Star Wars, Marvel, anime and pro wrestling. I also like to stay active with hikes, biking, skateboarding, and basketball.
