Hi, I’m Jonathan
A Junior Programmer, currently working as in the games industry.
I run 🎮 Carter Games as my indie brand to release under in my spare time, a lot of my latest personal work is on there as my professional work is under an NDA until it is public.
Since 2019 I’ve been regulary running. I mainly run to get out and for the exercise. But also take part in the occasional race. I normally run 2-3 times a week, running 5/10K’s though I hope to run a half marathon one day.
As a hobby and a challenge I started learning Japanese at the start of 2023. I do a little bit everyday and am slowing making progress. I hope to one day be able to speak, write and understand the language. But I know that’ll take quite a while to achieve.
🎨 Arts & Crafts
While I don’t get much time to, I do enjoy the occasional craft. I’ve knitted my own scarf & made an arcade cabinet so far. Though I have tried cross stitch, crochet & more.
Obviously I like playing games. Both board games & video games. I attend a few board gaming groups & play the occasion video game when I get the time to. Some of my favorites include:
– Persona Series
– Dishonored Series
– Bioshock Series
– Team Fortress 2
I like to volunteer when I can. Currently I volunteer weekly at my local Parkrun. I normally Timekeep but have done most of the main roles such as Marshalling, Token Sorting, Barcode Scanning, Tail Walking etc. I do plan to volunteer more in the future when I propely move out from home.
