I just landed in San Francisco, California for Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2016! I am arriving Tuesday night to start bright and early tomorrow. I flew in with Tyler Blust traveling CMH to PHX to SFO. We're meeting Kevin Bruggeman at the Hotel Whitcomb. Kevin Bruggeman and Tyler Blust are fellow Games and Animation students at Ohio University with me. I hope to have more information in tomorrow's post on some of the exciting things going on at GDC.

Hello and Welcome!
I've decided it's about time I start my blog and keep this website up to date on what I'm doing in game development. I'll be posting development anecdotes, code snippets, gameplay footage, problems I've run into and some of the solutions I've found. I will also keep details on any of the projects I am working on onto this blog page (as my current workplace permits).
When I entered college, I wanted to be a music teacher. I soon realized that it was no career path for me. I then believed I wanted to write music for videogames. I entered the games and animation program and started studying music in games. I continued this study, not quite certain of what I was doing most of the time, for a year until January 2015. I was on a game development team for a class at the time and we had no members who knew how to program. I took it upon myself as the producer to learn and found it to be a new passion. I have been coding ever since.
Since then I had finished the class, worked on three projects to completion, acted as a programming director for Lantern Light Studios, and am now working as the director for a new Virtual Reality Project, Memitim. I tutor Ohio University students on how to code and work the unity engine and lead a programming lecture series for the Ohio University Game Developers Association.
That about brings us up to speed with where I have come as a programmer. Future posts will deal with the actual development of the projects I am working on and events that I am attending such as the Game Developer's Conference next week! (March 14th - March 18th)
