I love programming, and I love video games. I married those two things together during high school, making maps and mods for Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike: Source. I loved it, but I hadn’t yet had the realization that I could actually program things — let alone make games — for a living.
It took me some time, but I eventually found my way into the industry. I currently work as a full stack web developer/designer. I also participate in game jams and build fun prototypes in Unity.
