What do you do?
I am trying to become an Indie Game Developer. I’m also a full-time single parent and caregiver to my invalid mother. Additionally, I post links related to Video Gaming, GameDev, Formula 1, Linux and assorted random stuff.
What do you see as the biggest opportunity in your industry?
Mobile and PC gaming are set to explode (in the latter case, again). The Indie scene is more vibrant than ever.
What impact will changes in your industry have on consumers? the world?
Games are being seen as more than just mindless entertainment. Their use in education, health care and training is growing tremendously.
What is your biggest goal right now?
To finish some games I’ve been working on.
What kind of support or types of people do you need to accelerate your success?
My biggest need is a graphics person. I van do the programming but my artistic ability is sorely lacking.
What makes you or your work different from everybody else?
I spent the first half of my life living in Europe during the height of the Cold War but now live in the US. This gives me a world perspective not common today. I’ve been in the IT field, mostly programming on mainframes and the web, for over 30 years.
