Sean, aka buzzard, aka Satoria

I am a commercial computer game author (Thief, Terra Nova), an indie game developer (Chromatron, Lost in the Static, etc.) -- see also the Indie Game Jam. I currently work at RAD Game Tools making software that will be used by companies that actually make games, but I'm not currently making commercial games myself -- I do still make little hobbyist "indie" games though.

I have some photos here, and some of my music is here.
