Don't Carve!

I'm 21 and I've been editing games aslong as I've had them. I can Map, Model, Skin, Texture, Animate, Code, and to a limited extent play with sound.

I'm that lovable little woodland rodent that'll help anyone who needs it aslong as I can find time. David "(Very) Angry Beaver" Gillen.

I started off back in the day with Civ 2. I soon figured out I could make maps I began doing so instead of playing. I then moved to Canada from England, bye bye everything electrical. After 3 months PC less came Starcraft, as a late comer everything had already been done and it sucked, nothing felt original. Inspired by Duke Nukem 3D's level editor I did one of the most intelligent thing I've ever done. I bought the HL Platinum pack and UT, both mostly responsible for my lack of social life. Between the two games I wasted years learning and bouncing between communities. Nothing really changed untill the release of HL2 though. A brand new engine and a top of the line PC. Ever since I've been teaching, learning, and having fun trying to finish things that I started, and coming up with too many ideas to do so.
