Hello, my name is Garret. I have been programming computers since I picked up my dad's Apple ][ Basic book when I was nine years old. Since then, I have come a long way. My most recent project has been the program and design of the Birth and Death of a Star applet, the Virtual Universe, and the game WormQuest. ThinkQuest has taken up much of my spare time this year and all my friends hate me for it. My other endevours include Mezornok, a cheezy VGA game that my friends believe I can still make money off of, Ruins, an utter failure, and the sound code/effects for the logo on the SoftDisk Publishing issue 120 CD. When I'm not trying to make computer game, I like to play them. My current favorite is Quake, by ID Software. Quake is an excellent game when played over the internet, and you may often find me at some server late at night, either racking up frags in deathmatch or mutilating my opponents in Capture the Flag.
Although it is sometimes hard to believe, I do do a few things other than ThinkQuest. I've been playing the drums for a few years now. Last year, I had a little band going with my friends for a while, and our only gig was for our school's Bullseye Literary Magazine's musical presentation. Currently, I am still trying to figure out how to keep a beat. Other hobbies include laser tag, moutain biking, attending shows and concerts of all types, sleep, and frying my brain in front of the TV.
I live in San Antonio, Texas, the Tejano capital of the United States. Other states I have lived in include Alabama, Tennessee, and North Dakota (where I was born) Last year, I was the secretary of my the Macarthur High School japanese club. It was a fun club, but I still can't say anything in Japanese other than Konichi Wa.
