I am a tester for a mobile phone software development company. I would like to write games for a living. For now I just write games for fun. I know how to write 3d games and graphics. However I love the speed at which and allegro game can go from idea to finished product. Also working with sprites is so much easier than 3d models. In addition to the programming side of game creation I am a decent artist. Some of my non game work can be seen on elfwood: http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/art/ s/a/saunders/saunders.html My hobbies outside of programing are: D&D, Fencing (foil), 2 string kites, and telling my girlfriend how great she is.
