About me: I’ve spent most of my life in California, beginning my career as a computer artist and designer in 1995. My
skills have developed through internet and gaming companies all over the San Francisco Bay area. I’m also
focusing on my own business efforts revolving around the computer gaming industry. I’m great in a team, can
think on my feet, am proud of my work ethics, and would love to find the right company of which to share my
skills. My other interests include family and friends, motorcycles, movies and mayhem. My ideal compensation
range is between 85 and 100k (negotiable). You can view my online portfolio at: http://www.37design.net/chai.
