Thanks again for the help and direction. It's so refreshing to go somewhere online and not get dumped, trolled, or hated on...let alone actually being helped.

Well from your suggestions I wrote a rough draft of a resume and was wondering if any of you had further suggestions into improving it. Some of the formatting might be off, and I removed my name, number, and email (just to be safe). One avenue I know I can work upon is actually creating a mod or small game project. If any of you know of an active (keyword there) website to meet others and create a small indy group, then please feel free to share. And as always, thank you in advance.
