    1) Your summary is not a summary at all. Look up the word summarize then start over with that section.
    2) Move your education to the end.
    3) Move tech skills right under summary
    4) In ALL OF your bullet points, you should structure them from the most impressive to the least or from most relevant to least.
    5) Remove the computer guy....we've all been there done that and if you're applying for a tech job, this is pretty much assumed.

    :werd: being 'reflexive' in a fps, or able to sit hours on end doing nothing in a mmorpg is not impressive :o

    No, actually I meant created (designed, programmed) from scratch lol. If I reword that to make that apparent does it make sense to keep it? It's something I am quite proud of and is probably the most technically impressive thing I have ever done as far as programming goes.

    You need an effective 'profile' at the top that says who you are and what you can do in one sentence.
