Hi, I’m Sheila Porter. I make games!

I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2012 with a dual major in Games & Simulation and Computer Science.  These days I’m working at Harmonix, writing code for Rock Band 4.  Before that, I worked at 1st Playable Productions, where I shipped 13 titles on iOS, Android, and LeapFrog handhelds, and served as lead programmer on four projects.  My areas of expertise include gameplay programming, user experience, UI programming, and tool development.

I love making games. Every day is a new set of puzzles to tackle, and the end result is essentially a machine for creating fun. This is the coolest industry ever and I feel incredibly lucky to be living my childhood dream every day.

Please feel free to say hi on Twitter, email me at, or get in touch on LinkedIn. I like to meet new people!
