Been programming since 1994 when it was required to learn BASIC in the computer classes in my 7th and 8th grades. Spent two years in BASIC before moving to C++ in '96. Primarily been using C++ since, but have messed with tons of other languages including assembler, C, C#, Python, Perl, Ruby, HTML, PHP, MySQL, CSS, Java, Javascript, D, Lua, and XML. In a phrase, I'm a student of all, master of none.

Game wise, I was brought up on video games and I have always loved them. I was brought up playing the Atari 2600 (Circus Atari, Pitfall, Defender, Missile Command, E.T., Space Wars, Asteroids, Pac Man, River Raid, etc.). Then I went to playing the NES (Super Mario Bros., TMNT, Metroid, Metal Gear, etc.). Over my lifetime I have had a lot of systems Atari 2600, NES, Gameboy, SNES, Genesis, Game Gear, N64, Playstation, Playstation 2, Gamecube, Dreamcast, PSP, DS, GBA, Xbox, Wii, and PS3. Bought a PS4, with no plans to get a PS Vita or Xbox One.

Hold a Bachelor's of Science in Game and Simulation Programming from DeVry University.

Spend my days programming and taking care of my family.
