My name's Josh, I'm new to the forum and very interested in becoming a member of this community. I'm a freelance programmer, long-time gamer, and part-time student. I've been writing in one form or another since high school, mostly for gaming purposes. I've DM'ed hundreds of hours of D&D, which, if you play, you know is a lot of writing and intense storytelling. I've also directed a number of short films for the San Diego and Palm Springs Film Festivals, as well as participated in the 48 Hour Festival, a grueling filmmaking challenge. I'm in school now for game theory and design, and hope to eventually develop my own computer games. To that end, I've begun writing short stories with the intent of turning them into games. I'm fascinated by the power of multimedia for storytelling, but I've always had a soft spot for the written word as well. I'm looking forward to sharing my work with you guys, and being involved in your work as well. It should be fun!
