I make video games. (website hidden)
Howdy!! I've lived in Austin for over 20 years and I'm in love with it. The city is so full of life and vibrancy that I will never leave. From the universe's best movie theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, to the crazy nightlife you can only find with a local's advice, Austin is home to the most diverse set of cool things to do that I have ever heard of. You would have to have an army of people to even TRY to do all of the FREE things to do in town. It's that cool. My life's passions are music and video games. I've played in bands from country to metal and I've made video games from EA Sports to a flight simulator for the United States Air Force and all points in between. When I was a kid, I won the Texas State Defender Championship in 1982. The machine I won is still at the house and you can play it. Over my life, I have built a LOT of weird collections of things, most notably a ridiculous Star Wars collection. We donated it to a museum, and because of that, you can experience Rock Band as it should. Like your own club. I figure that anything worth doing is over doing. So, there you go. I also donated most of my old games to the local University of Texas Video Game Museum. If you're interested, you can go visit! Some of the goodies are still here and you can poke around in 'em. The games I worked on, weird stuff I've found from here and there, and an almost complete open set of vintage Star Wars figures including a Blue Snaggletooth and others are all displayed for you to check out. In my time here in Austin, I've tried a broad sampling of the many things it has to offer, and I can definitely help you find something to fit your tastes if you are open to the experience. Seeing live bands is one of my favorite things, but meeting new people is definitely right up there, too. I've worked in the game industry since '92, and I've taken a lot of visiting dignitaries and new Austinites around to get them acquainted with the Austin scene. I am told that I have a knack of helping people find something they are interested in experiencing. In fact, I take visitors to my companies around and show them a great time as often as possible... not JUST for them... but because I get to experience Austin fresh each time I get to hear them gasp in delight at a new Austin-only event or location. My family and I believe that our house is truly your house and we welcome visitors with open arms. We believe that we should treat others as we want to be treated, and we like to be as nice as possible. Can't wait to meet you! bjc
