What is your area of expertise? (Art, Modeling, Programming, Animation, Sound, Music)

Full-stack web software development in Java (JSTL/JSP/Servlets) and PHP/Zend, with gameplay development experience using Unity and the Pop Framework.

What is your end-goal for joining the group?

Network and find more about local opportunities for indie game development with other local game developers and studios or assist with web development. Making friends along the way is certainly welcome.

Are you working on any projects and if so, what are they? (Provide website links if possible)

Yes, I am currently involved with PCZ Studios, an East Coast game development startup on a not-too-distant-future FPS. I work professionally as an software engineer consultant with a Stanford based start-up named Vidality (www.vidality.com).

What games have inspired you?

Space combat sims such as Wing Commander, as well as side-scrolling shoot/hack-em-up platform games such as Magic Sword and Mega Man. I have also been long involved in pen-and-paper RPGs (D&D, Fusion, Robotech, Rifts, Thrash, and playtested some home-brewed creations) and have followed several CRPG/adventure series such as Final Fantasy, Lunar, and Zelda.

Introduction

Software Engineer and Web Developer with four years' experience, and recently got involved in game development via Unity (plus game framework experience from college with the Pop framework). Avid follower of Japanese pop culture and tech in general.

Enjoyed meeting all, although I might have missed the presentation? Bread was my favorite of the evening.
