Career Shift

Today marks the final day of my (not so) illustrious career as a professional game developer and the beginning of life as student of law. While I cherish and appreciate the life opportunities I have had while making video games, this new and exciting challenge awaits.

Every aspiring law student must submit a personal statement to apply and be subsequently admitted into law school. In mine, I tried leveraging my games knowledge and history. Here's a snippet:
"For me games became something more than just a pastime or a simple amusement. I reveled in understanding the key to success within each game I played. Each had its own compelling system of rules and strategies to master."
Most of the schools I applied to apparently didn't think that understanding of rules for a virtual world could translate into understanding of rules (laws) for the real world: Denied. A few did: Admitted. I'm eager to prove my believers right.
