I still have the assignment from second grade where they asked me what I wanted to do when I grow up:
"Make Vidio Games"
While my spelling has improved my heart is still the same.
I grew up playing Super Mario Bros and over the years taught myself to program games so that I could explore the possibilities on my own. I could be a creator and grew to love designing experiences for other people to enjoy.
So the years past and I got a degree in game design and eventually a job as a programmer at a game studio and shipped my first few video games where I was informed that "Programmers can never be a designer".
So I set out to change that and ended up becoming a published board game designer and along the way, I've also designed electrical systems for a few ships currently in use by the US Navy too.
Eventually, I started to run my own brand that allows me to experiment and explore new genres and new experiences.
This story isn't over yet, it's just beginning. I don't know where I'll end up and the things that I'll take part in but I can't wait to find out.
