I was gravitated towards programming since I was young. My uncle whom works at McDonald's Corporation as a senior programmer taught me the ropes. I never picked up programming games with DirectX until one year ago and partially went to Arts Institute of Pittsburgh Online Division.
One year ago, I never liked to program in anything else besides Visual Basic because it was easy until I forced myself to learn CSharp and C++. So, when I take a break from programming - I spend some time playing video games getting fresher ideas.
