My Story and Skills

My video game experience which started in a bedroom whereby my younger brother whom had an enthusiasm for 8-bit computers. Fascinated with them and the graphics I taught myself computers through putting pictures displayed on a TV screen, the only screen available before monitor screens were invented.

This led me to a career in a new growing industry started in the 70’s. My background in print and magazine publishing led me to managing projects in game creation which led me to a short career in teaching computer graphics for games and print.
