Salutations, and thank you for visiting my personal website!
I'm Andy Gainey (once upon a time Andrew Gainey to those who knew me prior to 2010), a professional software engineer, independent game designer, and an amateur dabbler in many subjects, including philosophy, music (particularly drums), photography, art, LEGO, and science.
I identify psychologically as neurodivergent. I consider myself philosophically to be an existentialist, a neopragmatist, a stoic, an absurdist. Politically, I am, well, engaged but complicated, and don't neatly fit into common categorizations. I love music, and try to keep my musical interests broad. Similarly, I read extensively, though perhaps with a tighter focus on genres such as speculative fiction, and philosophy and science in the non-fiction category.
Included on this site are various lenses into my personality and my non-professional activities. I hope that the content can serve both as a means to let you learn more about who I am and what I'm about, as well as perhaps a source of inspiration to you in your own quest to develop your personal identity.
My current employment is as a lone game developer, with a present focus on game design and programming. You can follow my progress on my company's website, Experilous.com. I am moderately active on Twitter also, predominately with gamedev related tidbits. My handle is @AndyGainey.
