My name is Ava Rave Derevlany. I am a 2nd year at the University of California, Irvine studying Computer Game Science.
Straight to the point, I love technology and art. When you combine those two passions you get someone who really wants to build cool video games.
But not just any video games, virtual reality ones! Every since I first got my hands on a Oculus Rift VR headset, that has been my goal. I am going to create an AWESOME vr game! But in the meanwhile I still have much to learn about game creation and design.
I am also currently a supervisor at the UCI eSports arena. I am responsible for running the 80-computer facility -- first of its kind at a major public university. I get to interact with the ever growing gaming community daily. Gathering information on what gamers like in the games they play.
And what do a lot of these top tier players do? They stream! I have also recently gotten into programming for Twitch, the major game streaming platform. Along side creating games, I want to help create tools that the gaming community can use!
Of course, I don't just want to work with video games, I also love playing them too. Die hard Skyrim, Dishonored, and Gravity Rush fan here. But enough about playing and making games.
Let's get professional now. 😛
Therefore, wanna check out my resume???
