As a child I was always surrounded by Video Games. My family owned a second hand store, so when a new game was traded in, me and my brother always got to play them before my father tried to re-sell them. My first console was the Nintendo Entertainment System however I grew up on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Watching how games have changed over time has been amazing, the technology is incredible. It has always been a major hobby of mine to play video games.
As the years went on I changed between a few careers not knowing what I truly wanted to do, money was always the driving point. However one day I sat down and thought, why not make a career out of my hobby, my passion. Instead of just playing the games I grew up on, I want to make the games others grow up on. I want to make someone feel the emotion I felt while playing games.
I always try to keep a positive attitude, not only does it help yourself but it will help others around you too. I'm always up for a laugh, no matter how lame the jokes are, to be honest, the lamer the better.
So this is where the endeavor has taken me. I have completed the Advanced Diploma of Professional Game Development - Design at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment in Melbourne and am looking for a position within the games industry. I am also currently working on a few solo projects.
