About Me
My name is Luyao Tian. I was born in Jinan, Shandong Province, China. I lived in Jinan for my first 18 years before attending college in the United States.

I like traveling and visiting different places. Before attending college I would travel regularly with my family. During my college study I was focusing more on my academic performance than anything else. Therefore, I didn't do traveling at all. My parents do not travel as much either because we have 2 puppies in our home.

Traveling is only fun when I am accompanied with families, close friends and other people I would want to spend time with. Video games, however, can bring me fun even if I am alone.

I love playing video games, but I never thought that I could become one segment of this prosperous video game industry, until I took a course called Video Game and Media Programming at Iowa State University. I truly experienced how satisfying and rewarding it is to make video games that people enjoy playing.

Thanks, James Lathrop. It was you who brought me onto this track. I will be grateful forever and stick with this career that I deeply love.
