cats outta the bag, Ive given my 2 weeks

Hey there peeps, some news you can use. Ive given my 2 weeks at my current place of employment "Amaze" which is up this Wednesday the 25th. And starting May 1st, my new place of employment will be............dun dun dun..........drumroll please...........



Fall Line Studio's in Salt Lake City, Utah. Which is a division of The Walt Disney Company. Im so looking forward to getting closer to family again. And to also work for such the media giant known the world over. I will miss my friends and the lovely state of Washington, but this opportunity is too good to pass up, and Im looking forward to working with such talented folks. Here's a little blurb about the new studio...

Built around a core of industry veterans, the studio will focus on small-team, creative projects that leverage the Disney brand in new and innovative ways. Fall Line Studio will operate as a sister studio to Disney Interactive Studios Avalanche Software studio, also in Salt Lake City, giving the company an advantage in reaching the strong pool of creative talent in the region."This studio will be one of our centers of creative excellence and it gives us the ability to fully capitalize on our properties and expand our market share on Nintendo platforms," said Graham Hopper, senior vice president and general manager of Buena Vista Games. "Scott Novis brings the perfect mix of team building and relevant business experience to the position of studio head for Fall Line Studio." Scott Novis is the former head of Rainbow Studios in Phoenix.

Everyone that I met down there was so friendly and seemed really positive. Hope we can make some fun games for the masses, and get the Disney Interactive name back on the map respectively!

Hope to keep the art coming, and hope to get better in the process.
