I’m Kevin Jeon, Game Programmer For Gaudium, Inc. And This Is How I Work

I met Kevin Jeon in Calculus 3 at Michigan, he was this goofy kid who never showed up for the class like myself but somehow always managed to learn the material and excelled at the exams giving. Even as freshmen, he was a dedicated learner and was always interested in forming and grasping on to what he was interested in. In the next few years, he would take the time to learn on the side more about game development, while taking courses at the University. One thing I’ve always admire about Kevin is his self-drive to work on what he loves, for what he took from hobby to implementing to be his career. Let’s be honest here; he mainly operates on a lack of sleep and somehow still functions brilliantly.

He is one of the leading developers at Gaudium, Inc. for the game Armor Blitz, an anime strategy game for Android.
