Not a full time deal, just a contract job doing maps for Quake Live.

I won this mapping contest about 6 months ago, and was contacted about doing contract work for id immediately after.  After not hearing back for 5 months, I assumed that they went a different direction.  But I ended up with the job!  Cant get too detailed about it, but I'm really psyched!

So well deserved man! Very proud of ya, you did a lot of great work over the years, glad to see this finally realized, even if it's just "contract" work at this point. Very cool!

Congratulations to you for a job well done on that map for the contest. It apparently paid off in a way you did not think of at the time.

You Rock!

Yeah, I get to work from home (after working 8 hours at my day job).  But I actually enjoy mapping, haha.  Relocation is one of the main reasons I never really pursued a level design job, but this works out well for me.

About freaking time!!! Congrats man, this could be your "in" to finally become a career level designer. You are certainly one of the best and most committed mappers we know in this community, they got a good steal with you :)

Congrats Storm!  I like this part:

Cant get too detailed about it, but I'm really psyched!

You can whisper to us right?  We won't tell.

Haha, don't want to lose it right after I got it.

But lets just say that you may be enjoying the fruits of my labor sometime this summer.

Btw, here is a more complete list of my maps (for all games) if anyone is interested:

Site design is a bit rough, but there's a direct DL to every map on there.
