Video games were always my favorite hobby. Since I was 5 years old, a game console was my most treasured toy. I started to make games when I was 11 years old – me and my friends discovered board games, and I’ve made many good board games for my friends. I liked to make games more than play them. Over the years, my aspiration to make games became stronger. When I saw a computer and a computer game for the first time, I already knew – I wanted to be a professional game designer.
For me game design is not just a job, but a self-realization, and I savor the challenge to my skills and my knowledge. I strive to perform tasks meticulously and carefully, to perfect my design. Game design is full of creativity, and I find inspiration in all parts of my life – non-game events, problems, and tasks have many times offered me awesome ideas and methodologies for game design. For example, my experience and extensive knowledge of time management, planning, targeting and self-development, has enabled me to learn faster, work harder, and be more effective.
