   OBJECTIVE   I would be honored to join the rank of the elite, the hardcore. . . the game gurus. To be paid to test video games would be a dream come true. To find a workplace where I could be surrounded by like minded creative people, and be able to hone my gamer skills professionally. It would be awesome to be employed in an energetic, fast paced, and fun enviroment. And even possibly move onto game audio design.
