About Michael Hillman:

Born and bred in the south of England, Michael Hillman (simply “Hillman” to his friends) is a qualified Computer Programmer interested in creating innovative software products, intuitive user interfaces & gaming applications. Graduating from the esteemed University of Brighton with a First Class Honours degree in Computer Science (Games), Michael spends the majority of his time working on personal projects that focus on User Experience & Design, Graphical Interfaces, Data Visualisation and various aspects of gaming technologies. In his spare time he likes to poke around in Photoshop/Illustrator (he considers himself an amateur Graphic Designer), read classical literature and keep up to date with current affairs and new advances in the technology world.

Moving away from his beloved Sussex to Cambridgeshire, Michael now works as a full-time Software Engineer for a small, but successful, software house & consultancy, providing innovative solutions to the automotive, energy, powertrain & chemical engineering industries. Whilst Michael handles the majority of the office’s network administration and technical documentation/support, his main role is developing stable & intuitive desktop applications, driver couplings and data visualisations for use with the company’s chemical simulation solvers and statistics toolkits.
