about me LinkedIn profile icon.

Why hello there!

My name is Norm Nazaroff and I’m a game programmer and designer working at Human Head Studios in Madison, Wisconsin. I’m still pretty new to the industry, having started in February of 2008, so this site will serve as a sort of chronicle for my journey. Content ranges from hardcore discussions on programming or design theory to more light-hearted musings on current events in the industry.
