So, what is there to say? I am an INTP who works on team based projects. (WTF? how does that work?, you may ask).. Well, I ♥️ video games & I love creative people. Being that most in the game industry have a LOT of the same interests, it works out amazingly. I may be quiet at first, but once I warm up to you, you wont be able to get me to shut up.. NOTE: The cheat to skip this warming up section is to just hand me a cup of strong coffee.
You may be squealing "CHEAT CODE UNLOCKED!” but be prepared for a problem solver rambling about possible solutions to problems presented.
Another note is that although I work well in team-based environments, I can also work well when left to my own devices.
It does not matter what my time is spent on as long as I get to create. Wether that be working in a traditional medium like oils or sketching, music, to more complex creations such as code, hardware modifications, shaders, encoding (finding the ratio of best image quality, audio quality and memory footprint)
I am by no means a musician, but I do tend to throw noises together in hopes of it sounding somewhat tolerable.
I love listening to a wide range of music from:
Boards of Canada, Sigur Rös, Mogwai, MONO, Massive Attack, Radio Head, Grandaddy, Modeselektor, A$AP Rocky, David Bowie, Action Bronson, Sage Francis. This list will grow to an obscene proportion but as i'm developing the site, this will be a placeholder.
I love a LOT of the stuff from the 80’s and ill re-watch them on loop. (Right now i'm watching Police Academy=])
While working on Bioshock: The Collection , I was diagnosed with cancer. Fast forward to today and I’m a vital organ short, alive, and ready to make some crazy stuff with a drive one can only attain from almost dying. I have a lot of stuff to accomplish, lets get it done.
Before I got the opportunity to work in video games, I was a new media developer for:
40 Below Summer
Before I was a new media developer I did concert security for bands (The guy at the front of the stage who kept wacky kids from rushing and trying to touch the band members). annnnnnd before that I was a bouncer.
