Pedro Miranda Jr. (Street Articles Author)

I am one step away from getting my Bachelor of Science: Computer Information Systems from the University of the Fraser Valley in British Columbia. I love to play tennis in my spare time as well as cycling and gradually pen my novel that I am currently writing. I am also working to create my first video games (2D video games, that is) for the latest smartphone devices. Oh yeah, music! I can listen to various types of music just fine but I prefer listening to classical music, symphony orchestra (I absolutely love Gustav Holst and his “Planets” suite :D :D ) and video game music which is orchestrated. Very nice listen if you ever get the chance. Oh, almost forgot! When I have the time, I am also fascinated with designing my own music using FL Studio (a wonderful commercial music editing software, I recommend it). Lastly, when I’m not doing ANY OF THE ABOVE (and my general chores are finished), I would be playing video games! I like various genres of games: RPGs, FPSs, Platformer, Hockey, Baseball and Adventure. But the type of games I love most of all are 2D video games, usually of the side-scrolling variety.
