Geoff Sholler has an interest in video games since he first started playing them around the age of five. Many of his educational decisions were g eared towards the end goal of getting into the business of making them, and as such, he attained a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a focus on Videogame and Graphics Programming from the University of Miami in 2008. After that, he went to the Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy (FIEA) at UCF and earned a Master's degree in the field of Interactive Entertainment. While attending FIEA, he learned to use several professional-scale development toolsets, chief among them UDK. Upon graduating, he was hired by Trendy Entertainment, the makers of the hit game Dungeon Defenders, in a position which nobody can seem to find a proper title for, but Asset Integration Specialist, Level Scripter, and Technical Designer tend to be the most common ways to which he is referred. They all sound better than ''the guy with a technical mindset who knows nearly all of the engine tools really well", which is possibly the most accurate description of his job. He has been working there since January 2012, which means he has been elbow deep in UDK nearly every day for the past two years, including school.
