Go Right....

So August 3rd marks my final day at Retro Studios. It is a bittersweet thought, I have learned and grown so much at Retro. Ultimately the decision to leave stems from my career goals as an individual and what I want to eventually achieve one day. The only way to do that is to seek out new challenges and continue to push myself in new ways.

So where do I go next? Well I am happy and proud to say I'll be joining Bioware Austin as a Senior Environment Artist. I am excited for the work I'll be doing there, and the challenges that I will face.

I leave Retro Studios with much love and respect. I know the next game they release will be nothing but the utmost in quality. I can't wait to see it as a fan removed from the day to day of development. I am very proud of the work I have done at Retro and Nintendo and I remain a staunch fan!

Change is exciting
Change is scary
Change is necessary to grow

Take me to church...

I started this scene LAST YEAR! I had every intention of taking it all the way to completion (textured in Unreal 4). However given the time lapse, I am sick of this scene and the last thing I need in my portfolio is another "Ruin" I'm starting on a Sci-Fi scene I'm pretty excited about so stay tuned for that.
