About Jared Ramone Burksone of us since 9:16 PM on 01.26.2012

I'm a 23 year old game design student on my way to the gaming industry. My main focus is design, but I also program in java and C#. Animation isn't so far out of my range either, though I've never done it before I'm willing to sit down sometime and get a grasp on it.

I don't play many video games anymore, but when I do it's usually League of Legends or Gears of War.

Where I want to go or what I want to get out of gaming is have a job making them any way I can. Whether I'm working for a triple A company like EA or Epic or be an indie developer.
