Criss Martin

Sr. Game Programmer

Hello everyone, my name is Criss Martin. I am a Sr. Game Programmer from Melissa, TX. I have been programming professionally for 10 years, 5 of which have been as the lead game programmer/engine architect for Epic Tech, LLC. I love programming because it is constantly challenging me. Everyday offers new adventures and new problems to solve.

Throughout my career, I have been a hard worker that tries to bring more to the table than just solid programming skills. I believe strong communication and organizational skills are just as important. I also have an enthusiasm for learning and a passion for programming that I hope to continue to bring with me wherever life takes me next.
