A personal portfolio by and about Paul Conner

I studied at Santa Monica College, where I graduated with two Associate degrees (in Computer Science and Computer Programming) and transferred to USC. I graduated from USC in 2013 with a B.S. in Computer Science, specializing in game development.

I got my first job at Zindagi Games as a Software Engineer. I got to work on UI/Presentation and Engine Systems for an unannounced PS4 title. I also got to work on Crazy Kitchen, Zindagi's first Mobile Game. I left Zindagi in mid-2014 to my current job at Google. I work on YouTube, specifically on ads formats.

I started a small indie game development company in 2009, Twilight Horizon Entertainment. This is a passion project that I work on with a number of close friends in our spare time (around our full-time jobs). We are currently working on a proprietary game engine, as well as a few games. We hope to release our first title sometime soon.

Some of my hobbies include: programming, game design, electronics engineering, cooking, and playing games. I am also interested in hard-sciences and math, e.g.: Physics, Chemistry, Linear Algebra, etc.

I play a lot of games. My big obsessions have been:
Starcraft: Broodwar (2001 - 2011)
Ragnarok Online (2005 - 2010)
Minecraft (2009 - 2014)
League of Legends (2010 - 2015)
Overwatch (2015 - Present)
