Hi, I’m Ashton Mason.
I’m a South African living in London with my Polish wife.
I’m a coder and researcher in the computer games industry, where I use my background in graphics, 20 years of industry experience, and PhD in computer science, to develop cool procedural tools that make artist’s lives easier. Part of that is software engineering, a bit of it is research, and some of it is leading small teams. I’m Product Owner of a library of procedural mesh processing tools that I’ve been technical leader of for over a decade.
Outside work I like driving, swimming in the sea and cooking with fire. I’m into making pointless short films (okay, videos). I love mezcal and I can make a mean flat white.
If you like, take a look at my resume (I’m not currently on LinkedIn).
