Age: 22 year-old 

Gender: Male

Location: Charlotte North Carolina, (Orlando Florida [School])

Professional Career of Interest: Game Mechanics Programmer -> Studio Owner

Hobbies: Writing Novels, Crafting Convenience Programs, Model Painting, and Studying Game Design.

I thank you in advance for guidance you provide me and hope that I can provide an interesting perspective.
