Greetings! My name is Mel and together my friend Brian and I have worked for almost a year and a half on the amazing service that is Giant Multiplayer Robot! I’m a software developer by trade, graduating in 2009 with a BS in Computer Science from Utah Valley University here in my home state of Utah. I have a great passion for computer programming and have worked in almost all aspects of it! Most of my time has been spent developing desktop and web applications; however I particularly enjoy working on complex automated systems that handle data in an intelligent way. No doubt GMR contains many of those!
I’m an avid gamer, and when I’m not spending time with my family or working on projects such as GMR I play PC games! My all time favorite game(s) is the Mass Effect series, even with the disappointing end, it was still phenomenal! I also really enjoy strategy games and used to play them a lot when I had more time. Starting with Age of Empires when I was young I’ve since enjoyed countless hours with titles such as StarCraft, the Total War games, Command and Conquer, and of course… Civilization! I also enjoy some good RPG games such as Dragon Age, The Witcher, and Diablo.
Apart from my virtual life and career I mostly enjoy spending time with my children! My two oldest are 6 and 4 and lately I’ve been playing through some of the classic Legend of Zelda games on our Wii with them. It’s so fun to see their fascination and enthusiasm not just gaming but all aspects of life. I also enjoy several other hobbies such motorcycle riding, sport shooting, and the occasional round of golf.
I really enjoy helping other people and have found great satisfaction in doing so with GMR! It’s been such an amazing experience to watch the community grow and help more and more people enjoy the same kind of play style that I do! I hope to always be so involved and contributing to a project such as this
