GamingHi, my name is Thad David. I'm a former Marine Recon Sniper. I'm creating a mobile zombie game and came up with the idea while on a cargo ship securing the coast of Africa from pirates. Ask me anything. http://www.topiama.com/r/3761/hi-my-name-is-thad-david-im-a-former-marine-recon Hi Reddit,

My name is Thad David and I'm a former Recon Marine Sniper during the Iraq War. A couple years ago I was contracted to do security work of the cost of Africa, basically scaring away pirates. While I was living on one of the big cargo ships down there, I came up with the idea for my mobile video game.

I have been working on it constantly for almost two years now, and it is getting closer to being released. I'm pretty stoked to share with you one of our first gameplay videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkGfbF05g8Y

Feel free to ask me anything- from my experience being a sniper in the Iraq War to moving away from a military career and starting a video game company. I would love to hear what you think about the game.

Director / CrewIamA voice over actor, director, writer, and artist for animation and have worked on nearly 200 episodes of animated television! I'm Andrew Racho. AMAA! http://www.topiama.com/r/3757/iama-voice-over-actor-director-writer-and-artist Hey friends!

I'm Andrew Racho! I started out my career in animation a decade ago by moving to Los Angeles and answering an ad on Craigslist. That listing turned out to be an internship for a show called Robot Chicken, where I worked on over 100 episodes. I went from intern to digital effects artist to behind-the-scenes video maker. I also worked on other shows such as Moral Orel, Frankenhole, and Titan Maximum. While working in stop-motion, I discovered acting and put myself through acting school.

I've since pursued a career in voice over and have been in cartoons that I know Reddit loves.

I hopped on a few shows with a really great guy named Adam de la Peña, who cast me alongside him and Felicia Day in a cartoon called Outlands. Later I wrote, acted, and directed for a series called TripTank.

And all the while, I've been making my own cartoons on the side.

My latest project is a cartoon based off of characters from my web comic, Convenience Store Diet. It's about three characters navigating their late 20's and falling behind the times.

I'm Kickstarting the project here and hope you can back, share, and support it!

Since I've worked in nearly every part of this business, let's talk about making cartoons, writing for animation, doing voice over, visual effects, Kickstarter, careers, life, thriving in the arts industry, making comics, and the DIY nature of indie productions.

My Proof: https://twitter.com/CSDwebcomic/status/581485398821474304

EDIT: Thank you all so much for stopping by for this AMA and chatting! This was fun! Be sure to check the Kickstarter to my new animated show Convenience Store Diet and back it! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1648801663/convenience-store-diet-an-awesome-animated-show

NonprofitI am a Syrian woman who has been forced to leave my country because of war. I now live in Iraq and work with International Medical Corps in refugee camp supporting other Syrians who have fled the conflict. Ask Me Anything! http://www.topiama.com/r/3749/i-am-a-syrian-woman-who-has-been-forced-to-leave Thank you for all of your questions.

To find out more about International Medical Corps' work to support Syrians affected by conflict and to find out how you can support International Medical Corps, visit www.internationalmedicalcorps.org.uk

And follow International Medical Corps on Twitter and Facebook for updates

Thanks for your support!

My name is Zozan. I am a Syrian woman who has sought refuge in Iraq to escape the raging conflict between ISIS and Kurdish militias in my home town in Syria.

I studied English Literature in Syria and graduated in 2010 to become a teacher in a Syrian secondary school, where I worked until I had to leave the country.

I now work with International Medical Corps to support women and children affected by mental health issues and gender-based violence.

I am joined by Julie Davidson, International Medical Corps' Assistant Country Director in Iraq, where we deliver health, mental health, youth programming and gender-based violence services to Syrian refugees.

After four years of ongoing conflict in Syria, 3.8 million people have fled to neighbouring Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey, most of them women and children. Find out what life is like for those forced to flee their homes and how Syrians are working with International Medical Corps to help others cope with the impact of war.

We look forward to hearing your questions. There may be occasional questions that we won't be able to answer to maintain the safety of others, but we will try our best to answer them all as far as possible.
