     My name is Scott Pastor and I just graduated from George Mason University with a Bachelor of Science and information technology with a concentration in web development and a minor in business. Now I have fully moved to Virginia Beach to pursue a career in my field of study.

     I have learned a lot in my four years at GMU; for example, I was sure I wanted to concentrate in Networking at first. My job was in networking at the time, and I seemed to have a decent grasp of it. I only wanted to work with hardware because I feared coding and other software related work. This distain for coding likely came from when I first took a college level Java programming class and failed it hard. When I retook it a semester later with a much harsher professor I had an entirely new respect for it. I realized that I needed to approach programming like a puzzle that takes a lot of trial and error to get right, and after looking at it through this new lens I welcomed the challenge.

     In my downtime I spend much of time playing rhythm games. The first rhythm game I played was Dance Dance Revolution for the PlayStation 2 when I was a young kid. Then, when I turned 16 and got my driver's license I would drive down to the local arcade to play DDR several times a week. When I moved to Virginia Beach after my first year of attending college, I met a ton of other players. This was such a drastic change for me because I had only really met a handful of players before in my small town. Because of this newfound community I got even more invested and nearly monthly started attending conventions, tournaments, and arcades all over the east coast with these new friends to compete.
