Hi, I'm Mike.  Much of the time, I'm a PhD student trying to unravel the brain and stitch it back together through computational modeling.  The rest of the time, I work on interactive things - whatever they are called.

I have been getting frustrated with the abundance of distraction entertainment in the medium. It doesn't bother me that those things exist - to each his own - but it's so odd that everyone isn't demanding more.  I really value the couple friends I have who can see the potential of interactive experiences to convey something deeper, but it beginning to feel isolating to work on these types of games.  So googling around brought me here.

I've made a couple of smaller scale things in the past (http://mikewesthad.wordpress.com/), but now ideas are pulling me towards Blender and Unity.  There's one thing in particular that I'm chasing down - about what it might be like during stroke.  A bit of a memoir for a family member.

That's feels like a bit of a down note to end on, so what I should say is - I'm excited to peruse the forums and meet you all!

Welcome! One of the reasons for this place to exist is indeed to keep each other company in a world filled with people with no imagination, no desire, no ambition, no joy.
