I graduated with a Software Engineering degree back in 2012, and failed to create a startup indie game. I currently work with propane accounting software and primarily use C#/SQL (but use other tools and languages all the time). I am an idealistic person grounded in sci-fi such as Star Trek, Orville, and other similar atmospheres. I am an open person, and try to be socially aware of what I work on. I enjoy gaming, software engineering, science, and a bunch of other topics.
In terms of modding, I have been around forever. I started back in the early 2000s with a game called Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force as a map maker. I mainly focused on roleplaying maps to use with the RPG-X mod, and a few CTF maps. I have always been an Elder Scrolls fan, but never got used to the Construction Set. With the Creation Kit's release for Skyrim, I instantly started creating mods for the game. Skooma Bear, Skyrim Book Stores, Skyrim Pizza, Nessie - The Tale of 350, Morthal's Ghastly Mine, and Pneuma Manor are just a few of my projects.
I started a tutorial series once I got comfortable enough with Papyrus to help with better understanding the scripting language. I took a programmer's perspective when going over the concepts of the language (haven't gone over Objects in big detail, as time has not permitted for this). I also have done a few special topic tutorials, such as setting up the Horse Riding feature for Clara Goldspirit over at the Nexus.
I have worked with modders over at the Nexus, and other communities. A few examples are with Skinnytecboy's M.H.A.R.P.H.I.N. music playing feature, a lot of Clara Goldspirit's ai features such as Weather-Awareness, Gift Giving, Horse Riding When Player Is Horse Riding, and Custom Home/Wait Locations. I am happy to assist with other modders with scripting questions, or general modding questions. If I don't respond right away, it is most likely due to my currently crazy work schedule.
With the craziness in the world, I have also started using my work to communicate serious topics. One of these projects is my Social Conscience Series with the first item in the series being a Cryodil Scholar's Speech for Diversity, Unity, and Tolerance. I am also integrating the material into my Pneuma Manor overhaul that touches on topics with regards to women empowerment and struggles, racism and classism, and a variety of topics while defining the Sixth Era alternate universe background for the player home/research facility. It is important I use my skills in a positive way.
