AI Super Resolution Solution for Video Game Assets
Created a tool capable of high-quality upscaling of video game assets using deep learning to make an older AAA game look new again. It was a solo project—I compiled a dataset, designed and trained the model, and then made it a tool for artists.

GPU Rendering and Computing Back Ends for Filmmaking Software

Implemented a GPU abstraction library for computing and rendering to help a platform independent filmmaking software be as performant as possible. The library can use both Metal and Vulkan as the back end. Designed to run under Windows, Linux, and Mac.
