Currently a senior software developer/architect at a large financial institution.
I am one of those guys that wanted to make those Atari and Commodore computers on display in K-Mart in the early 80's do something. I spent way too much time in the 7-11's (and any other arcade) blowing my allowance on Donkey Kong, Galaga and the rest.
That and countless hours playing Zork on my aforementioned Commodore 64 got me hooked on programming, always with a desire to animate things and make really cool graphical stuff. Somehow I ended up doing factory automation software, enterprise apps and web site integration to legacy back ends. The closest I get to games is doing XHTML/CSS and pretending I'm a designer.
