Headin' North...

...That's right, I'm movin' on up to Seattle to join the crew at Valve . I'm not what you'd call a ravinous game player but if you're familiar with the work coming out of Valve you know they are taking it to a whole new level. This will definetly be a new direction for me with some of the smartest and most talented folks I'll have the pleasure of working with...and besides, Seattle is beautiful. It's amazing how quickly I fell for the area...there's just so much to love there. I'll keep you all posted...wish me luck.

Congrats, man! I hope things go well with the new gig. I'm totally envious that you're moving to my old stomping grounds. Grew up in a little town a couple hours west of the Emerald City, and the school I attended was right on Elliot Bay. Absolutely beautiful country! We'd move back in a heartbeat if I could work the job situation right, but not being a gamer, I don't know many other ways to pull it off just yet. One day, though. Anyway, good luck!
