About

I'm Dan Donnan, I'm 25 and am currently working as a Game Scripter in the games industry. I graduated from the University of Salford's BSc Computer & Video Games course in 2013, focusing on Programming, with a first class honours. I have been making games since discovering how hyperlinks worked in Powerpoint in the early 2000s, and am now proficient in a variety of programming languages.
