I'm a game designer looking for new opportunities.
I'm a tech blogger for Livid Lobster at GeekBeat.TV and One Man's Blog.
I won NaNoWriMo 2011 after live-writing my stories. I continue to write daily at http://www.fictionimprobable.com where all of my work is available for free.
I have terrible difficulty deciding between writing under the name Gord McLeod or Gordon S. McLeod. Currently, Gord McLeod is winning.
Once upon a time, I designed video games for Ganz Studios, the makers of WebKinz and the announced Tail Towns project. Many many moons ago, I wrote and drew a short-lived forgotten web comic.

The Sword and Laser: Determination 1 18 Aug 13, 2012 03:21PM  
Tina Fey
“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

Gary Provost
“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”
Gary Provost

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Jason Halstead Hey Gord - thanks for the add!

I remember the days of playing video games fondly. I still admire them from afar as I walk past them in the store wondering if I'll ever have time to break out a classic or pick up a new one. Anything in particular you've developed or worked on?
