My Name is Marc Andrew Newton. I have worked with Unknown Worlds Entertainment on Natural Selection 2 for over 3 years as a Level Developer and Internal Web Tools Author where my goal is to develope tools, systems & means of communications that collect, organise and deliver data in a manner that contributes to the reduction of time spent on administration in favour of automated systems for tedious time consuming tasks.
