When? Where?THATCamp Bay Area 2011 is happening Sat & Sun 22-23 October at Google in Mountain View, CA.
I was born in Oakland CA and am the youngest of three(one sister and one brother). We were all born with a bleeding disorders called hemophilia and von willibands. when I was less then a year old I contracted hepatitis c from the medicine that saved my life. I was raised in Richmond by a single mother and though I love learning, I have been struggling with school for most of my life. I recently found a job as a game tester and though I really enjoyed the work enviornment, the job itself was far from gratifying. Since leaving the game industry I have returned to school and am currently working twoards a computer science degree. I hope to become a game desinger one day and change the education system to be based on more game based learning (since this is the method I learn the best in). Schools like Quest 2 learn have been real inspiration for my path.
