After a few years working for startup game companies in town, I simply had to move on to another field of work because while the work was enjoyable, it was tough to really feel financially secure. I now still use my 3D modeling skills, but instead of working on games, I am a part of a team creating flight simulations.
I tested out one of our in-progress simulations, and while in the cockpit, I managed to head down the runway and take off smoothly, but landing was certainly another issue. I also couldn't help but try rolling the plane in the air.
Aside from my normal job, I have also been writing for a sports forum since March 2013. Since I follow NFL football year-round anyway, I figured I might as well write articles and have a successful side job in the future as well! Beware though because I am a Ravens fan living in Pittsburgh. Not a typo at all. :) I like the Penguins though (even though they frustrated me beyond belief under the Byslma/Shero regime). As far as the Pirates are concerned, baseball simply isn't my sport of choice.
