Most of the time I walk into storylines half drunk and stagger my way through the plo.... oh wait, that's conker.

I study Computer Science, and dabble as a forum moderator and Lifeguard when I'm not being educated. It's a fun life, but it needs more goggle eyed inanimate objects.

I do nothing. To be honest everything colleges and universities teach you is all here on the internet and I've learned at a insanely faster pace compared to the way schools teach and they don't even teach you all the information and skip important events in history like the genocide of native americans or how hitler even rose to power instead "he's bad. And we got him after a succesful normandy invasion also remember these voacbularly words. Freedom, Democracy, Marshall Plan." That may be an over-exaggeration, but they don't really teach much and the American Education system isn't the best and has constant interruptions.

I find gaming more entertaining than a lot of other stuff and I don't put myself in stressful environments.

I used to work for Nintendo Guatemala as a Trade Representative and Merchandise Specialist.

Had to resign because I had almost no time for my studies which I'm in my last year of Civil Engineering hopping to get to work on that line in the future.

I'm a Test Technician for a growing electronics company in the south, mostly plugging circuit boards into jigs and the testing get is automatic, gives me lots of time for browsing and planning out the evening's gaming sessions. Nice to see a range of people coming together like this :)

I earn 0 money all the time and the only thing I do that has any kind of worth is a comic that nobody reads! But once the current chapter is done, I will have to make sure I get a job, cause I need to buy some stuff, obviously, and start others. (yes, I know that's not the greatest tactic)

Oh, I also forgot to mention that I have been part of the Student Executive of my college for four years now, I helped the college get outstanding from OFSTED inspectors (the highest grade)

For those who do not know student executive act like the bridge between the students and the college management. We are even allowed to attend lesson observations from time to time :D

My favourite part of being Exec is probably volunteering for the open evening, it is great fun :)

Just because I'm not posting doesn't mean I am stalking your every move, determining my next course of action...

Going for a bachelors in Computer Science, full-time student. I play music and video games in my spare time.

Might get an internship with some programmers working at a branched office for some genetics research firm based out of Baltimore. Already applied for some IT jobs in the meanwhile.

Been playing RARE for as long as I can remember. Zelda on the NES was my first video game ever. The SNES and N64 weren't too long after and I was playing Donkey Kong Country, Banjo, DK64, Diddy Kong Racing, Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, Jet Force Gemini, etc.

Needless to say RARE is one of my most beloved childhood game devs and seeing that blue and yellow playtonic logo brings me joy haha

I'm an (sometimes) overly ambitious, but underachieving indie/freelance gamedev, mostly mobile for project size, time & money reasons.

Few years ago I tried to adapt a bit of the "old-rare" style in , but then i had to realize that it would become to big for just me to finish in a realistic timeframe and had to cancel it. :(
