olivebates's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
I grew up on a small farm in Denmark, in the outskirts of a town called Aarhus. It was a simple and enjoyable time of my life, that I often recollect. I remember when I was four, I got a game from my Grandmother, called Freddie Fish. I was so enchanted by the level editor, and how fun it was to design your own levels, that it sparked my life long dream of becoming a Video Game Developer.

At the age of six, we moved to the USA, a small town in California called Whittier. We lived there for two years, and I met some great friends, whom I hope to meet up with again some day. We went there to be with my dads side of my family, you see. And my cosine Phillip taught me about all the wonders of The Legend of Zelda universe. It was great, but it couldn't last forever. Due to... heavy complications, that my parents got into, we were kinda forced to move back to Denmark.

By the time that I got put into the Danish school system again, I was so far ahead (thanks to the tough Californian school system), that I didn't really need to do much until the 7th grade. I graduated from 9th grade, with a grade average of A. I now go to a gymnasium for video game programmers, where I learn about programming, drawing, music producing, marketing, and so on. I live with another a few other guys, here in Sepent, and Alcuin. I often come home to visit though.

My parents have always been heavily supportive of whatever I do, which has allowed me to flourish in ever branch of activity I have ever wanted to do. They don't mind throwing the money at me that I need for my various hobbies.
