When I was growing up in the 80′s and 90′s I didn’t have much and a lot of my time was spent playing video games.
I am an adult now and gaming is still a big part of my life, So much so, that i ma currently actively pursuing a
Bachelor’s Degree in Video Game and Interactive Media Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
I love games and want to make them someday. I think the gaming industry is the best way to shape
the minds of the future because nearly every household has a video game console. When kids aren’t doing chores and homework, most likely, they are playing video games.
