Hi my name is John,
Developing games has always been an interest of mine, and at one point I was seriously considering going to a University for it. Life though took a sudden turn for the bad, and my plans were ruined. I was left jobless for 3 years, and lost what little I had. It was period in my life where the years blended together, and I was pushed to my limit. I picked up my personal motto of “Keep Moving Forward”. Finally in 2011 the light in darkness came in the form of a apprenticeship at a shipyard. The next 4 years I would succeed, and complete that apprentice becoming a journeyman pipe fitter. I had picked myself up, and dusted myself off coming out of the most difficult period of my life stronger than when it started. Successful people aren’t born or made. They’re forged in fires of challenge, difficulty, and trail. What defines them is the challenges they overcome, and how those challenges make them stronger and better than they were before. I am now more determined to make my dream of not only working in this industry, but having my own studio with my own team making games to my vision the way they were meant to be. Not having a board of greedy accounts deciding how it should be, and how it should be cut up to maximize the profits at the expense of the experience.
I know the road ahead won’t be easy, but behind me lays a more difficult road I have already defeated. My success will only be limited by my desire to succeed. Dream big, aim for the moon, and never look back. Keep Moving Foward.
