As of now I am a college student studying game design, and I often work as a technical artist on larger projects. On smaller game projects I work as a 2d artist and animator. A lot of my job actually goes into keeping a game's graphics manageable and scalable, and keeping any given game's frame rate high.
I started gaming on a Dreamcast and I never stopped. I continue to console game, however PC gaming is cheaper and has become my primary gaming device.
