IGM's Level Design Class

IGM's Level Design Class

It was years ago when I first encountered a level editor. I think this was during the summer between elementary school and middle school. It was that experience that made me want to work in the games industry, setting me onto a path that has led me here. For the past couple years, IGM has been workshopping a level design class that is now becoming official. I was one of the TAs back when this was a seminar.

My First Two Years at RIT

My First Two Years at RIT

Author: 

Before coming into RIT, I honestly had no idea what college was going to be like for me and how I would end up doing. Leaving home for what was pretty much my first time, coming into a new environment, and not knowing anyone who would be here was a very nerve wracking experience for me. Now that I am approaching the end of my second year, I wanted to take a look back at my experience at RIT as a whole, what worked, and what I would have done differently if I had the chance to redo these two years.
