I am a Twitch streamer and chatbot coder, among other random and assorted talents. Is “jack of all content creation” a thing yet? It should be! I put out all kinds of media and projects for the enjoyment of others.
I originally started streaming on Twitch to showcase older games like Myst and Zork: Grand Inquisitor for my friends. Quickly things evolved till I had a budding audience and a regular schedule for streaming. My Twitch streams are mostly focused on story-driven games (rpgs, point-and-click adventures, etc) and multiplayer adventures with friends (mmos, sandbox exploration games, etc.). I stream at least four nights a week; you can check out my calendar for details. I also make guest appearances on my friends’ streams regularly. Check my Twitter or Discord any given night to find out what I am up to.
I started programming chatbots with my Fashion Check Gaming friends in early 2017 when we got the idea to make one based off the Secret World Legends character known as “The Little Smiler.” A month later, the idea had exploded from a “cute bot that sends emoticons at you” to “what else can we make this thing do?” I started making a variety of other bots for Discord servers. Eventually, my scope expanded beyond Discord, and I am now also creating chatbots for WordPress based websites using IBM’s Watson Assistant.
