Software Engineer + Photographer, Gamer, and ModderSoftware Engineer

Hi There

I’m Rory, I live in Reading, and I work for Xbox Game Studios as Software Engineer. I joined Microsoft through the apprenticeship program. My projects include bot automation, code quality metrics, websites and services that collect, use and display meaningful data to stakeholders.

Being in gaming has always been important to me, as thats what started me down the software engineering route. I first started learning how program by making flash games in Action Script following YouTube tutorials. Then while playing Minecraft I discovered a passion for modding, thus learning Java. Since then I have broadened my skill set in various languages and frameworks such as C#, ASP.NET, C++, TypeScript, React, Angular and many others.

In my spare time I like to read, do photography, play video games, and make the occasional game or mod.
