About Velvety Couch Games:
I have been passionate about game development since the early 1990s. From my first adventure game created in HyperCard to mods made for Quake and Half-life, my childhood was full of game designs and creations. After releasing numerous level packs for games like Quake, I worked on the award winning Half-life mod Firearms that was included in Valve's Counter-Strike retail package. These days I'm working as a full time game developer, and in my spare time I continue to create indie games from my studio Velvety Couch Games (such as the puzzle game OddBalls and my new project Elemancy).

I am also a passionate supporter of growing and improving the game development community. To that end I am one of the co-organizers of the local Victoria IGDA game developer Meetup group. We meet a few times a month and host events for aspiring and experienced game developers alike. I believe that game design, the environment we create games in, and the industry in general still have a lot of room to grow and improve. Community building is an important part of helping games reach their full potential and it's also a great way to share and learn from each other. Come join our meetups any time and be a part of our growing community. Everyone is welcome and they're free!

About DJ Velvety:
Dancing and music have always been a part of my life. As a DJ my music tastes vary from jazzy beats to deep and funky jams. I started spinning records around the turn of the millenium under the moniker DJ Velvety and played at various events and venues around Victoria BC. Eventually I started a monthly podcast show called Home with House. This series features over 30 mixes each over an hour long exploring the realm of jazzy, funky, atmospheric and uplifting house music. For more information, including free downloads of all my podcast mixes, check out the Music section of this website.
