About Me

My name is Xuan Zhai, or you can call me James. Welcome to my website!

I am a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University Entertainment Technology Center, pursuing a Master's degree in Entertainment Technology. I got a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree from Southern Methodist University in 2022.  

I am a Gameplay Programmer and a Gameplay Designer. I have created multiple games, from 2D games to VR games. Most of the games are developed with the Unity Engine. Moreover, I am a Graphics Programmer. I have experience with OpenGL and WebGL. Last but not least, as a software engineer, I've learned coding with multiple languages like C++, Python, JavaScript, etc. I have learned how to develop software applications using Qt, AWS, and Xcode.

Most importantly, I am also an enthusiastic video game player. I've played many games on platforms like PC, PS4, XBOX, and Nintendo Switch; I still remember that my first game console is a Game Boy Advance SP. Currently, I'm playing Final Fantasy XV and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. 

As part of the ETC 2024 family, I am collaborating with my teammates to make more fun games in the future!!
