Tell us about yourself.
Something about myself? Well then. Come hither and listen close, for I tell ye a tale most arcane! … Honestly speaking, though, I consider myself to be a wandering traveler on this beautiful earth. I rather enjoy seeking and creating art that moves me in such a way that it leaves a profound mark on my soul. Programming, I guess, is a way to express that, oddly enough. Constructing systems and architectures that must work together as effectively as possible is a task I find most gratifying. Yes, it is difficult sometimes, especially times when trying to work out a nasty bug that just won’t scurry away. But at the end of all things, when I finally take that step to look back on what I’ve built with my teammates… that is what I live for.
What is your favorite video-game and why?
My favorite game is undoubtedly Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. For those who know the game, this may seem a peculiar selection. Tucked away in the corners of the online multiplayer lied a mod for the game. This mod, named “Makermod”, birthed my glowing desire to become a programmer. In this mod, you could work with others to build any type of structure you could imagine, given the restraints of only being able to use spawnable objects stashed in the game. I spent my childhood years building, role-playing, joining clans, creating clans, and became a part of the community.
