I have been a computer programmer for 4 years, but I have been using computers since I could walk. When I was growing up technology was a new and exciting industry. To this day I still can’t believe we actually created computers.
On weekends you can find me creating Perler bead sprites or pixel art. If your unfamiliar, its creating video game characters out of tiny beads. Each bead represents a single pixel. You melt the beads together and create art you can hang-up. My current largest project has over 3 thousand beads and took 10 hours.
One of my most favourite quotes is…
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.”
― Henry Ford
An ultimate “bucket list” experience for me would be to travel around the world visiting technology and video game conventions. I plan to attend Dream Hack or E3 one day.
