  1. 1. Ivan Montiel

    4. I play guitar, piano, drum set, and violin.

  2. 1. My name is Regino Flores.
    2. I chose CS because I love being around technology. I tend to stick with video games a lot more when it comes down to the technological world.
    3. I want to be able to make my own game whenever I feel like it. I want to be able to work with the production of video games someday.
    4. I had an internship with a professor here at ASU that dealt with programming an Arduino. I also had an internship with the Arizona Science Center that included learning about the integration of science and journalism.

  3. Hey Regino Flores, have you checked out: ? It's a graphics engine for C++ (I believe they have wrappers for other languages). I currently code my game using the engine.

  4. 1. Michael Wenz
    2. I chose Computer Science because I have grown up around computers and learned to love what they can offer. I just wish I can help to create something that will enable others to do the same, and well, I don't think I would do very well as an English major.
    3. Even though games haven't really dominated my life or anything crazy like that, they still captivate me because it lets me engulf myself in another world.
    4. I plan to be getting a hair cut this weekend, possibly.

  5. My name is Nicolas Fox. I originally got interested in programming due to video games, but have recently focused more intently on robotics and artificial intelligence. I currently work as a software developer at a credit card company, but also enjoy writing my own programs on the side.

  6. My name is Michelle Hernandez. The reason that I decided to go with a CS major is because I have worked in the field and wanted to learn more in depth about it. The areas that interest me in are security and the network side of the house. I am from California and love to cook on my free time.

  7. My name is Damion White. I decided to take computer science as a major because computers have been a part of my everyday life for many years now and it's something I've always been interested in getting into and working on. I would like to create the next great program that people use everyday. I am really interested in becoming a software engineer. I play tennis in my off time and I know how to ride a segway.
