I am Patrick Blaauw, a 22 year old Game Design and Development student from the Netherlands. I am a C# game developer with a passion for making and playing games. When I was a little boy I always dreamt of making my own games, and that dream has come true!
Another passion of mine is editing videos. I was already editing my first videos when I was 13 years old. I am not doing that as often as I did before, but I still love to do it.
In 2013 I graduated highschool (HAVO) at Wessel Gansfort College in Groningen. In 2013 I started the HBO study Communication and Multimedia Design at Hanze, University of Applied Sciences. In the first year we learned a lot about different subjects. We learned how to make movies, created a website, made our own corporate identity and created my first little game. In year two I chose the major Game Design and Development. This is where I learned all the basics of Game Development and everyday I am still learning. I graduated in November 2017.
Bulldog Studios is a group consisting of four friends. We are making games and applications together and we are a very tight team.

We are not limiting ourselves to school projects, we also have a couple of projects running in our free time.
Other members of Bulldog Studios are Vincent van Beek, Bryan Klunder and Niels Tromp.
