First of all, I know that my name is hard to pronounce. Please, call me Matt P.!
I'm a passionate, left-handed level artist and designer, landscape architect, amateur photographer, urban explorer, quite a good cook and food lover. Founder and writer on LEVEL-DESIGN.org website. Active in the professional video games industry since 2007, modding and making custom game levels for "Quake" any other games since year 2000. Scared of spiders, can't swim, ambivert, addicted to video games. PC is my platform of choice. First X-Com and first Quake are my all-time favorite games. I made my first level layout sketch when I was 8 years old.
All opinions are my own.
When designing a level you're able to freely compose your virtual environment with any objects you want. A level designers' work can be compared to that of a painter. Now let's see the level as the art gallery and the level vistas as paintings.

Great to see such a collaborative approach where programmers, artists and designers are not separate teams but actually work together to reach interdisciplinary goal. Communication, approaching and being approachable is the key here.
