About Me


My name is Michael Adaixo. I’m a programmer! I blog about video game development, programming in general, computer graphics, and any other topic I deem interesting.

I once won awards for making robot-shopping-carts follow you using only a Microsoft Kinect.

Now I work at a BLKO making games and interactives for clients, work on in-house projects, and make indie games at night.

I have experience in C++, C#, HLSL and Swift languages. Most of my time is spent working in C# with Unity. I’m proficient with Unity and am learning Unreal Engine at full speed. I’ve released 3 mobile games at SkyBelow Studios.

I believe anyone can become or do anything, given time, motivation and passion. This is why I never stop learning and am always trying to solve challenging problems.

You can find me on LinkedIn or Twitter or by michael.adaixo@gmail.com
