About Me

I am currently an Exploratory Studies "major" at NC State University in Raleigh, NC. By next year, however, I hope to be majoring in Computer Science with a concentration in game development. I would also like to tack on a second major and potentially a minor or two, but I have not yet decided on what those will be. Regardless, I hope to graduate by Spring 2020 and enter the workforce soon after.

Why Computer Science?

I have chosen to pursue this major primarily because I have loved playing video games for as long as I can remember; in fact, some of my first memories are of playing Mario Kart: Super Circuit on my dad's GameBoy Advance. Since then, I have also taken a liking to computers and programs, as well as understanding how they work and how one can use them. Consequently, I think Computer Science will be a good fit for me. With this degree, my ultimate dream would be to one day work for Nintendo, but I would be happy with being any sort of video game developer.
