My goal in life is to use whatever skills I have, to improve things here in the world as much as I possibly can. In the process, I've gained experience in both the programming and artistic sides of digital development. I've tried to balance my work with a little bit of everything, from drawing and Photoshop to AngularJS. I figure the broader my knowledge and skills, the better I'll be able to work with others in specialized roles.
Aside from playing video games, I try to keep my interests as broad as possible. There's no substitute for experience when it comes to good ideas, and so I try to soak up any new experience I can get- I never know when it may inspire me in my work.
Journalism, electronics, inventing, landscaping, telemarketing- I've had experience working in so many fields it can be hard to keep track of it all sometimes. But it all inspires me in one way or another. Having an entrepreneurial spirit and an insatiable appetite for learning new things doesn't hurt either.
