About

My name is Andreas Mikko and Giron Games is my personal portfolio on the internet. I grew up in the small town of Kiruna in northern Sweden and graduated from Uppsala University in 2014 with a Bachelor Degree in Game Design and Programming. A degree I upgraded in 2018 to a master in Interaction Design and Technology with a focus on game development at Chalmers University of Technology. My merits include gameplay programming, QA-testing, lecturing at Södertörn University and Microsoft Azure development at Semcon.

Giron is a Sami word for rock ptarmigana gamebird that thrives up in the fells of northern Sweden. Giron Games originates from the very same subarctic mountains. Blistering cold and blazing aurora will always feel like home and the ptarmigan best captures the unique nature and culture of my subarctic origin.
