Hi, I’m Saeed Gatson | Software Engineer

I love experimenting and creating 👨🏾‍🔬 I’m a life long learner 👨🏾‍🏫 who has a thing for cookie dough ice cream 🍨

My Skills

C#, Git, JavaScript, Node.js, Unity


💚 love creating things.

At a young age, I read the instruction manual from my favorite video game cover to cover. That’s when I came to the realization that “normal” humans created games.

That started me down a path to learn computer programing. And eventually lead to getting a B.S. in Computer Science from Cal State East Bay.

Since then I’ve been tinkering with all sorts of technologies that led me to work on automation, Fintech, 2D games, and many more.
