Hey!

Here's a shortish wall of text for you to climb, where I talk about the stuff I've done.  I assume you didn't come here by accident, so you'd be delighted to know all about my work at EA Sports on SSX, and the titles I've worked on at IUGO Mobile Entertainment, like the Animal Academy series of games, Sunshine Cruise Lines, and the blockbuster hit 'Knights & Dragons' for our partner, GREE Inc.!

Please be sure to check out my story Without You, as well - I worked a long time to craft it to where it's at, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Throw me some feedback, I'll throw you the whip!

Also, see me here at LinkedIn and Check out my portfolio!

I 'd like to think that the line between unintentional and thoughtless is wavering, and optimistic that people aren 't disrespectful enough to cross it for the wrong reasons. r n r nIn an earlier post, I referenced Serrano 's 'Piss Christ '. I find that defensible under every tenet ...

It would be interesting to see this research done inclusive of the sales that happen pretty much weekly with all these games. Have you considered going back and trying to calculate what the bonus rewards are for anyone who takes advantage of the routine 20 bonus type sales that you ...

It 's sad when someone like this passes, because he was one of the designers that still held the torch for a bygone age that the industry is built upon. It 's men and women like Python that brought games to the fore, and made them 'social ' and 'accessible ...
