Hi, everyone! I'm Andrew, super excited to meet you all!


Since my early childhood, I was always interested in art, computers, and of course, video games. Everyday after school, I could be found creating ‘hilariously bad’ stick figure fights on the family PC. As I got older, and navigated high school, my fascination with animation converged with a newfound love for programming. Armed with nothing but an IDE and some java, I embarked on the journey of creating my very first games. It was during this time that everything clicked - a realization dawned upon me. I knew what I truly wanted to do; I wanted to make games!


A lot has happened since then. I pursued my passion through post-secondary education in game development, participated in numerous game jams, and launched my YouTube channel, 'ThatOneUnityDev.' On this platform, I found immense joy not just in creating games but also in teaching the art of game development. I've had the privilege of assisting hundreds of thousands of developers in realizing their goals.


As I continue this journey, I'm excited about exploring new facets of game development, diving into challenges, and sharing the lessons I learn along the way. Join me as we uncover the fascinating world of game development together!
