Welcome to TromboSpace!
I started to teach myself programming in 2021. Now, I have released one small game, three small mods for The Indie Stone's Project Zomboid, and have many more projects coming down the pipe.
I started learning programming in my spare time as a high school English and music teacher. Before this, my list of "programming" experiences was short: just a summer break in middle school spent playing with the simple scripting language of Bullfrog's Dungeon Keeper Level Editor. Now, I'm taking time away from work to dig deeper into the fundamentals of C, C#, Java, Lua, as well as the Unity and Unreal game engines.
Compared to programming, games and game design are more familiar territory for me. I have been making games in one fashion or another for about as long as I can remember, from board games pencilled into the backs of scrap cardboard as a kid, to the repurposing of disappointing store-bought games into original playable creations, to a home-brewed TTRPG modeled after the best elements of the many such games I have played. I have also been running a rules-modified D&D game with a rotating roster of 19 characters, which will soon see its 100th session!
I live in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with my partner and our two geriatric cats. In my spare time I like to get these old fur babies playing, I run a YouTube channel about The Indie Stone's Project Zomboid, and I play trombone in a funk band or classically (undoubtedly to the bemusement of my neighbours).
Thanks for reading and I hope you find something here that you like!
