Over the past couple months I have been /QUIETLY/ learning new things. I say quietly because I haven’t mentioned anything about it here.
I have taken two online classes from a site called Skillshare (www.skillshare.com). The first was a viral marketing type class, it gave me a brief look into how I may need to market the things I would like to produce in the future, needless to say it was a great learning experience.
The most recent class was a 4 week game development class. A tool called PlayMaker! for the Unity 3D development program. This is a 3rd party tool that allows rapid development of prototyping games without diving heavily into code. You can check out the Visual Scripting tool here http://www.hutonggames.com/#&panel1-8 .
This tool is fantastic, it has allowed me to test systems in unity out, without having to hard code it all in, saving me time, and most of all head aches(being someone who is still learning C#).
I have a goal in mind, and Playmaker may just allow me to race for the finish line. There is much work to be done, hard work, and I think my body is ready!
I’ve never been much for these blog things(oh god I’m old!). But the path my live has taken, especially as of late, has deemed that perhaps it is time to dive in and just /deal with it/.
So, Greetings! I’m honored that you’ve visited my blog(I mean really I wouldn’t, but that’s just me). I hope to use this space as a place to keep my projects and goals both organized and on a forward progression. To that extent Over the next few days(or weeks) I plan to share a bit about what I am doing in my life and the crazy adventure it is turning out to be!
So I guess I will leave it off here with a little bit about me. Being of /sound/ mind and the ripe age of 28 years old, I’ve lived in the Seattle area for a good 5 years now. Alongside my partner(in-crime) we are attempting to craft various types of video games(of which I will discuss at a later date!).
Prior to moving to Seattle, I was Born and raised in Southern California. This is where I fell in love with audio, and took my first steps in trying to etch out a career in Sound recording(little did I know how drastic life would challenge me).
Some time later /bam!/ I found myself in Seattle(I’ll spare you all those details for now). Where I was introduced to Audio Design for video games. I had the opportunity to assist on several student project from the animation department at the Local Art Institute(Ai Seattle).
While my life dictates I pay the bills I have found a secure position at an UN-named Office Supply store. During my free time however, I have been learning the Unity engine as well as some C# coding language.
I can’t say I know what the future holds for me, but what I can say is that I’m in for one wild ride, and all i can really say is “Bring it!”
