When you see a 14-year-old boy who has never known what peace looks like for a day in his life, there's part of you as a human being that feels some degree, you can say, compassion for the fact that these boys have known war, famine, violence and death from the day they were born.
I kinda liked ol' Shakespeare and them guys, you know. I went back and got my master's just in case.

There must be some one quality without which a work of art cannot exist; possessing which, in the least degree, no work is altogether worthless.
I earned my Ph.D. in philosophy, and one of my specializations was the logic and mathematics of game theory. I've also got a degree in drama, so I know about stories, characterizations, plot arcs, and the like. Lots of game designers can do one or the other: I've got the skills for both.
