Hello, my name is Andrew Kuelbs and I am a computer science major with a focus in game design. I am currently a senior credit wise, but because I transferred to U of M Dearborn from Oakland Community College I still have about 3 semester left to finish my degree. I grew up in Farmington Hills, but now I live in Allen Park.
Some of my favorite things to do are play and watch soccer, code, and play video games. I have played soccer since I was 4 years old and I am a huge supporter for Liverpool F.C. and i even have a tattoo of the quote “You’ll Never Walk Alone” on my right arm. Liverpool plays in England, so the time difference can be quite difficult at times, but I will wake up at any hours of the morning to watch a game. One day I hope to be able to go to Liverpool and catch a game along with going to abbey road.
Currently the game I am playing the most is a FPS (first person shooter) called Counter Strike: Global Offensive, but my love for video games started with Crash Bandicoot and got really big with the Halo franchise. I enjoy playing the game with a group of friends in which we team up in a 5vs5 game. This game does focus on aiming, but I the fact that communication is the biggest key to playing this game and winning. It proves that teamwork can beat out individual talent, but that doesn’t happen every game you play. One of the biggest things video games does for me is it allows for me to reconnect with some of my friends who have moved away. We can plan a night to log on and play together and we even catch up on life. On top of playing video games, I love to spend time creating new content for games and seeing what people think about it. This ranges from creating new skins, to make things look different, to creating new maps people can play on. Video games are a big part of my life, and I hope to continue with them in the future by getting a job in that industry.
