Gamer Bio:

Hey, I'm Zach, and I'm a software developer. I graduated from Iowa State University in Spring 2010, and I'm currently attending the FIEA graduate program at the University of Central Florida. I've been a gamer as long as I can remember, and I'm hoping to break into the field of game development after grad school.

Right now, I tend to play FPS, RPG and rhythm games. If you ever see me on Rock Band, CoD:MW2 or RDR, drop me a note and I'd be more than happy to play you.

    Hey Zach, I NEEDED to stop by and thank you for the great code you wrote for the new forums. Makes them look unique and cool. Super Awesome job!

    Although I should be yelling at you for making "color=darkblue" much harder to find with all those crazy new color choices, lol. But #000080 is my color and I found it after all.
