My name is Christian Arca, and I love life. No, really, I do. Everything I do, I make sure I love I do. Whether it be from updating my website, performing research on semiotics, being the lead designer at work, working out, playing soccer, listening to music, playing video-games, or just being my spontaneous self, I love it. My chosen profession is in the games industry, and I see no turning back. I live and breathe design and I simply can't help it. There's no other industry where I could picture myself right now and I am both happy and honored to be a part of it.
As you can probably already tell, I am willing to try anything. I feel that most of our daily activities are not just actions we take, they're something much more. They're experiences. Experiences which define whom we are as well as serve as inspiration. Whenever I am in "design mode" I take a step back and look for inspiration in many of my experiences, which have great range. The more you experience as a person, the more whole you become, at least I think.
Some of the experiences I take part in are, writing, playing the piano, alto sax, guitar, photography, scuba diving, rock climbing, and traveling. Some other things I enjoy include watching soccer, particularly Real Madrid C.F. and the Spanish national team - as I am from Spain - watching Formula 1, Moto GP, participating in spontaneous trips, playing video-games, watching films, cooking - I really love cooking - and of course playing video-games. In short you could say I am your average guy who is from Spain, works in the game industry, and wants to get the most out of life as he possibly can.
