I'm a Electronic Engineer currently designing and programming amusement park rides in central Florida (no, not roller coasters.. maybe some day). In my spare time: I play in a band called "Positive Chaos", work on cars and motorcycles, make maps, code random things, and support my local breweries.
As for maps, I usually only create material for competitions and community projects. I have so much other stuff going on in my life that it's nearly impossible to get anything done without a hard deadline ahead of me.
