Technical Director and Chief Architect of Novaleaf Software (and Novaleaf Game Studios!) Novaleaf is Thailand's leader in real-time simulations, and is located in Bangkok. Jason is about as 'expert' at C# as one can get, and has a passion for high-performance simulations (scientific or otherwise) While Jason has a Linked-In, Twitter, and Facebook account, he never checks them. Apologies, email me!
