In fifty words or less, describe yourself.

I have a passion for video games, whether it’s playing them, making them, or just appreciating
them. At Tech I’ve been searching for what my place in the video game industry would be.

What is the coolest thing you have done in your studies as a CM major?

I’ve made some cool Gameboy games in one of my classes in the past, but currently I’m
working on an Architecture project that will be displayed in a virtual reality environment that I
think my the coolest project yet.

What are your professional goals?

I want to definitely end up in the game industry, as either a writer or designer, but coding for
games would be cool too.

In one sentence, explain why students should choose the CM major.

Students should choose this major because it allows you to combine design with coding. For the
future, it allows you to have broader career choices since you will leave Tech with knowledge
from both fields.
