I enjoy designing and creating visual and functional content for games because I lose track of reality. Getting focused on something that is a constant puzzle is the key to happiness, at least for me :).
I'm not necessarily a game developer, so I would say I have a some experience in game development. I have experience with a lot of same triumphs and issues as a game developer while working with software engineers as a computer artist, so I would imagine it's fairly similar.
I've been involved in a number of professional efforts in the "Serious Games" realm. I have done quite a few tutorials with XNA Studio, Unity 3D, Blender Game Engine and PyGame. I have never released a title on my own, though.
I'm mostly into creating 3D Character art, 3D Environments, rigging, animation and GUI development. I mostly create the visual side of games (front end developer) and I also enjoy concept development. I almost have one toe in the water on game logic, but that is something that would be better left in the hands of a computer scientist.
I'm a 3D/2D computer artist from Columbus, Ohio. I work by day creating 3D/2D graphics for software. On my free time I design 3D Characters and improve my programming skills.
