Hello, and welcome to my GameDev.net profile. My name is Rob, but I prefer to go by the alias of "THE ARK", which has no meaning.
I have been a gamer since as long as I can remember, my first console was a Sega Saturn, which I remember at a young age playing, as time grew on I was introduced to more gaming platforms, but it wasn't until late in my teens when I was introduced to PC gaming and Programming.
I've been programming games for around 2 and a Half Years now, I first learnt to create text based games in PHP, and thus gained alot of experience in web development. I moved into C++ pretty quickly after that and have since gained experience in Java/C# aswell. I'm a very fast learner, and have been self taught in most aspects of game development up until now.
I have a Level 3 Diploma in Games Design and Development in which I achieved overall (DDD* = AAA*), and will be studying Bsc in Computer Games Programming Honors at University this September, so it should be exciting times.
I'm here to learn, advance my knowledge and share what I know. I hope to make alot of friends, and persue my career as a game developer. So hook me a message any time, i'm quite a friendly individual.

Gaming, obviously. Studying Computer Science and Mathematics, Linear Algebra all the important stuff. Computer Games Programming, and Tools Development. Generally just enjoying what computers can do and offer, but also getting out, socialising, I'm becoming a pretty avid fan of Airsoft, so lets see how that plays out...
