When I'm not developing the future's code, I still spend quite a bit of my time in front of my computer. I run my own YouTube channel, that features a lot of Let's Plays on video games that I enjoy playing. If I'm not recording my YouTube videos, I'm either editing them or I'm livestreaming some online games on my Twitch channel. Video games are a big part of my life (as it evolved from casual gaming to online competitive and career) and I plan on continuing for many years to come. I enjoy learning new things as new games I'm interested in comes out. I fully involve myself into the storyline, hashing out details of what's going on, cracking bad jokes in the game, and listening to the music. While I do play many hours of video games, I also make sure to dedicate time to practicing my instruments and techniques daily. If video games are one half of my life, music is the other half. I have created and transcribed many pieces of video game music for all grade levels (elementary, high school, and college) from many of the greatest video games such as: Legend of Zelda, Mario Brothers, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, and more.
Though I spend a great deal of my time indoors, I do find time to go out into the world. If I'm outside, you can either find me at my favorite fast food places (Jack in the Box/Carl's Jr./Arby's/Little Caesar's/Chipotle), dining indoors (Olive Garden/Longhorn Steakhouse/Golden Corral), or at the Disc Golf courses. I do enjoy disc golfing with my brother and my best friend (David Gain, our other Sen. Web Developer/Graphics Designer). That's mainly it. I don't like really going outside as much as I used to, especially the way the world is during this pandemic.
However, being outdoors and indoors doesn't stop me from finding plenty of inspiration. Along with creating videos and music, I also found my voice as a writer. I have written a total of 8 Books and I have published 2 of them. They're all fiction based, traveling the known and unknown universes as an once powerful entity (known as The Great Sage) that is searching for his 6 other Sages. Lots of tragic, lots of adventures, all based on decisions that he makes. He brings his long time friend along for the ride as well. He even experiences some of the most hardest decisions that leave him emotionally scarred, making him regret the decisions he once made. It's pretty fun writing, as I find inspiration in many places like: my video games, movies, shows, and more. There's plenty of references and jokes along the way as well.
