Portrait of Maximillian Laumeister

My name is Maximillian Laumeister, and I’m a Software Engineer living in Watsonville, CA. I like to spend my free time programming, drawing, composing music, and tinkering with web tech!

I have a B.S. in Computer Science: Game Design from University of California: Santa Cruz, and I am experienced with HTML5/CSS/Javascript/jQuery, Unity3D, Java, and C/C++. In addition to my programming background, I also have a strong design and video production background, including experience with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, and After Effects.

Some of my biggest achievements are getting my software featured on NPR and The Verge, hitting the front page of Reddit multiple times, graduating with highest honors, getting 8 million views on my YouTube partner channel, and earning 10,000 reputation for posting helpful answers to programming questions on Stack Overflow.

Below is a portfolio of my projects. If you’d like to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you at max@maxlaumeister.com.
