My name is Theo Swartz, and I'm currently a university student.

Favorite activities include using the computer, drawing, reading science fiction/fantasy, random photography, climbing trees, and taking walks at night.

I've been playing computer games since I was very young, and it is my dream to create one of my own. I haven't yet found a medium with which I wish to do this, but I have been learning computer programming (Python, Java, C#, and more).

I've made graphics and levels for several games - creatures for Knytt, a level (with a homemade tileset) in an expansion pack of Knytt Stories, and several levels in official course packs for Orbz.

I didn't grow up with any Nintendo systems, unlike lots of others - instead when I was young I played games such as Top Hat Willy, Worms, and Black Crypt on the Amiga. When I was slightly older my dad bought a Sega Genesis, and my sister and I spend ages playing the Sonic games, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, and Contra: Hard Corps (which I have since successfully beaten every ending of). Then came the N64 age - my first taste of Nintendo. I adored Kirby and the Crystal Shards, and loved 3D rpg's such as Zelda: the Ocarina of Time and Donkey Kong 64. I now have a PS2 and Gamecube, and enjoy lots of different titles. I love the Tales games, and Katamari Damacy, to pick a few random examples. Check out the My Favorite Games section of this website to see my chronicled love of the games I have played over the years. (Mind you, it's still unfinished)
