Rob

 

One day, Rob discovered he had fingers. Soon after, he discovered they were designed to hit keys and press buttons. Of course, if you ask his daughter, she’d tell you his fingers were best used for soldering and DIY.

After a career in CAD/CAM software development, Rob fell into game development in 1996. Since then, he’s built up extensive experience developing game engines.

In 2004, he brought that expertise to R&D with a focus on new feature development for PhyreEngine™.

Thanks to Rob’s traditional software engineering background, he’s as comfortable with PhyreEngine™’s high level system architecture as he is with low level optimisation.
