My name is Michael A. Hawker. I was born in Montreal, Quebec, but I have lived most of my life near Burlington, Vermont. I decided to come to McGill when I graduated from Champlain Valley Union High School.
I currently am pursuing a Masters degree at McGill in Computer Science. I also completed my undergraduate studies at McGill with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Philosophy.
My ambition in life is to have my own software company to make better software and games.
I probably should have been in Software Engineering. I love programming, and I love designing and optimizing systems to make things better. Not only for speed, efficiency, and readability but also for expandability.
I am proficient in a number of programming languages including C/C++, Python, Java, and PHP. I'm also a strict stickler to the web-standards HTML and CSS.
I've currently released a demo of my latest game, it's available on my website here.
Outside of programming I also have many other hobbies. One of which is music. I've recently released a CD containing some of the techno music I use in my games. It's available for sale here.
