Hey there! Thanks for visiting. My name's Ahmed. I'm a gamer, tinkerer, and the owner of a hyperactive imagination. Many years ago, my parents wondered, "what's this Atari 5200?", and bought one. Something clicked, and I found myself addicted to video games... which was good, because I proceeded to grow up in the great cornfields of Illinois. Between the video games and school, I picked up a Dungeons and Dragons handbook at some point and became enthralled with that as well. I kept myself and my friends entertained with stories and games of epic proportions on the dining room table, rolling dice, slaying goblins, and burning villages. By the time college started, I was hooked on making up and trying out new scenarios and stories, both on the tabletop and as an amateur video game designer. By the time grad school was over, I was putting my creativity to use as my profession.
