Also, I have worked as a Game Programming Intern at The Walt Disney India Pvt Ltd. During my internship I was working on a live project called 'HITOUT HEROES'.

I have worked in many projects sharpening my own skills in various languages like C#, C++, Java, Unreal Script, Python, Lua, Groovy/Grails, HTML5/CSS etc. I am familiar with engines like Unity3D, Unreal Engine 4, Visual Studio.
