I remember back in September of 2009 when I was now apparently moving to Texas. Never did I think in a million years that'd be where I'd end up. My last job in videogames had wrapped up in spectacular layoffs and I was out to dry. Thankfully only a few months earlier I'd finally got to meet Burnie Burns at my first San Diego Comic Con. We hit it up and I find out they had been trying to hire me 2 years prior the first time we talked. I'd presented him with a theory and quickly followed up with a concept for the next season of RvB. And not before long I was on my way to Austin Texas
I get to the studio and being a fan of Red Vs Blue, having listened to the many commentaries and the very young Drunk Tank Podcast I thought I had a pretty decent picture of what to expect. To my surprise contrary to the exterior this company projects. Everyone had their eyes pinned to their screens and was quietly working.
It's now 2014 and that has not changed. Yet I have so much more to be grateful for. I owe more than can be said to be here at this company. Much is different but much is the same. I see new faces every now and then. The office is just as quiet. Okay maybe nowadays a random nerf dart battle will break out. But it's five years later and people still work as hard if not harder. Very little has changed, just more of it. I found this to be a great fit. Even better, this was a place that allowed me to work as hard as I wanted, as often as I wanted. A novel idea apparently, work on something you love and you'll never want to stop doing it.
Thus every year after having finished one project, I have always began work immediately on the next one. RvB Seasons 8,9, & 10. RWBY Vol. 1 & Vol 2. And without missing a beat now onto Vol 3. And I can even begin to explain how grateful I am that I am allowed to work on such wonderful things.
This journal deserves more specifics and gratitude than I can give in thrice the amount of paragraphs. But if you know me, I'd much rather than the time spent speaking (as useful as it is) work on the these projects.
So without wasting anymore words
