Adam Ison

Game Programmer and Web Developer

Hi, I'm Adam Ison

I am a web developer and game programmer based in Portland, Oregon. I have a professional background in web development and a BS in Visual and Game Programming from The Art Institute of Portland.

Programming is my passion and I am always looking for new ways to progress and evolve. Learning new things and discovering profound, elegant solutions to challenging problems is what keeps me going.

This is what I do

Game Programming

I specialize in game development using Unity and C#. In addition, I have a great deal of experience using the Photon Unity Networking library to implement multi-player functionality. I have a deep love for games of all sorts and creating them brings me a great sense of satisfaction.

Application Development

I develop mobile applications and games using Corona SDK and Lua. I have worked as lead programmer on a team developing a mobile application for OPB.

Web Development

I have over 8 years of experience in the industry and have worked on everything from small brochure websites to large commercial web applications. I specialize in Drupal development and I have done work for clients such as Oakshire Brewing and the University of Oregon.


Here are some of the projects I've worked on.
