As always, Sean gave me thorough, specific feedback that I could use to improve my storytelling. His deep analysis is especially helpful at guiding me... in new directions I wouldn't have considered on my own. He's one of my go-to critique partners! :)show more

About Sean Bentzen

I'm a hardcore PC gamer, author, professor of political science, former insurance agent, political consultant, and specialty finance worker. I regularly wonder if I should have gone into game develop...ment or swore myself to poverty to write novels for a living. I have a voracious appetite for politics, consistent with my expertise and profession, and love to get into it with anybody - minus hurt feelings and painful arguments. On the personal side: I'm married and have two children, a son and daughter. I've also got two cats and a dog. I'm pretty sure the only reason we don't have more pets is because of the size of our house. You have to stop eventually. I've recently taken the plunge and started an indie gaming studio called Digital Meatloaf. I and my co-founders are making our first game which we hope to release sometime soon. One of the reasons I finally started the studio was because of Simbi. Being able to barter for a few of the initial services I needed to get started was extremely helpful. I and my co-founders simply didn't have the money or expertise to do some of the things we needed at the very beginning, so being able to barter our services for help made a big difference. Anyone who thinks that such a barter exchange service is just a fad or just something to pass the time underestimates it. I'm living proof that Simbi can be an extremely valuable service. For that, I hope to contribute to the Simbi community for as long as I can and in whatever way I can.show more
