Welcome to my portfolio website. I'm Joe Coppola. I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York. One of my earliest memories is watching my brother playing Super Mario Bros on the Super Nintendo. Since that day I have always loved video games, and that passion pushed me to enroll at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I graduated from RIT with a Bachelors of Science in Game Design and Development in May 2016. 9 months before then, I started work as the Lead UI/UX developer on Hack Slash and Backstab, which would later be released on Xbox One, Steam and the Humble Store on August 31st 2016. I started working as a 3D Creative Software Unity developer at IBM Watson in Austin, Texas after graduation. In November 2016 I moved to Faceware Technologies to work as a Software Engineer. I currently reside there working on several projects, both new and already in production.
