What's your favorite game and why?

It's so hard to name a specific game. I'm 27 years old and my first game was on the Atari 2600. That's a lot of games! But I can name a favorite Genre. I think that would be the agile stealth adventure genre. So I'm thinking Splinter Cell, Assassin's Creed and Mark of the Ninja. There is just something about staying in the shadows and waiting for the perfect moment to strike.

What can you contribute to our community of creation?

I'm a developer. So I can contribute with the code and mathy bits. My skills are mainly in .NET but I really don't care what language you throw in front of me.

What do you expect to get out of helping to build a game?

Some projects in my portfolio and some connections in the game industry.

Tell us something super random about yourself.

When I was in 4th grade my teacher sent me to collect pennies for a school-wide penny drive. Each grade had a jar of pennies to give me. When I got to the kindergarten class there was a substitute there. She had no idea what the penny drive was. When I asked for the pennies she gave me a toy money thing with fake coins in it. I was too shy to tell her those were the wrong pennies and too embarrassed to bring the fake pennies to my teacher. So I hid them behind a counter and ran away. The guilt of stealing a toy from the Kindergarten class haunted me for years haha.

Introduction

Hey! I'm a developer in Kalamazoo and I'd love to one day develop games. When I was in college I was the president of the Game Inventor's Club at WMU and we mainly used XNA at the time. I'm looking to network more in Ann Arbor.
