I'm a 2D/3D artist in the video game industry. Currently I work at Telltale Games as one of their Cinematic Artists. I view being an artist as a profession of continuous learning and passion. For every one thing I get good at, there are two things I need to learn :la:

I live in the San Francisco area, I'm a huge gamer (whenever I have the free time), and I love to mountain bike and swim. Over all, I'm just a big kid ;-P

Why Am I On Twitch?

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 31, 2017, 12:50 PM



I know there's a good amount of you who watch this channel who don't really get Twitch

:lag: I remember almost 2 years ago I jumped on Twitch for two reasons...


First and foremost, for those that know me, know I'm a big extrovert.  Which means I recharge and relax by being around people.  Believe it or not, large groups of people energize me!  Sadly though, what I do for a living, I tend to meet a lot of introverts.  So while I'd love to hang out, play games, talk, etc.  More often than not, people would rather go home (which I completely understand).  Secondly, I wanted to find a way to use my skills to help raise funds for charity.  Because of an organization called Extra Life, raising funds for charity on Twitch is VERY easy to do.


Plus, Twitch streaming allows me to indulge in my hobby of After Effects, video work, and marketing.  You wouldn't think "marketing" could be a hobby, but it's something I very much enjoy!  I also find an enjoyment making overlays and figuring out new ways to do things.

All of this then lead me to form a charity team on Twitch known as "Playing with Fire."  In almost 2 years we've raised over $120,000 helping sick kids and service vets!

So for those who don't fully "get Twitch."  If you watch YouTube, you're already half way there.  Twitch allows people to interact with an audience, but live.  Sure, there's a focus on gaming.  But I tend to take it in a different direction, make it about community and entertainment.  This is a hobby that has pushed me as an artist, fulfilled me as an extrovert, and has allowed me to help others through charity.  Very thankful I get to do what I do.  Thanks for taking the time to read all of this.  Hope to see you drop by one of my shows sometime! :glomp:
