I’ve always wanted to do things on the computer. When I was nine, I began programming with HTML. I kept trying to learn more, but HTML got too easy for me. Then I discovered Flash. Within a few weeks I had taught myself how to make animations. At first the animations I made were with stick figures, and I used them to make my first web page. But then I wanted to make my page more interesting, so I added backgrounds, figures with faces and proper bodies. I also began programming games with Flash. At the moment all I have is an island, but I would like to make a whole planet where my figures can live together peacefully.
