Hey, my name is Steve Diezel. Born and raised in Miami, Florida, i'm an eager level designer looking to give back.
I've always enjoyed hanging out with others. Be it a night at a bar, a round of a board game, a long winded table-top RPG session, a scary movie, or even just working collaboratively, the draw of a good time with others is hard for me to resist. Not to say I don't appreciate a good solo session, it is easiest to work for me when I enter that "zen" state that comes with working alone to a good beat, or a good read on a late night.
Despite that, the phrase "better with friends" is something I tend to apply to my life. A good meal, a road trip, a movie, a game, my life is a chain linked by links of group and solo activities. Made stronger by it, I'm not afraid to jump into a group setting, or to back off and tackle issues solo.
On a less preachy note about myself, I really enjoy board games, sushi, art books, action movies, anime, D&D, and dogs! Of course video games as well, but you already knew that. I tend to collect art books and figures from series I enjoy, so my desk leans towards an art display instead of a place of work! I've got my board games on display as well, ready to invite anyone I can for a match of Betrayal at House on the Hill or Dark Souls: The Board Game.
I want to work in the game industry to give back to the community that helped me grow so much as a child. To be able to give the feelings of happiness I felt to someone else. I know my personality and drive will be a match for numerous teams, so I look forward to working with the numerous like minded game developers out there!
I graduated in December 2017 with a BA in Digital Media, and now having earned a Masters at FIEA - I'm excited to tackle the myriad challenges that come with game-dev with you!
