Spiritual Successor to Giants Citizen Kabuto!

I've waited 14 years for a successor to the video game "Giants" and Nick Bruty and Rogue Rocket Games have officially set out to do just that. Just a few months ago my brother Aaron was saying he's still waiting for a sequel to Giants after all the fun we had on our PC network at home. 

Please spread the word and help these veteran developers reach their dream and breathe some life and creativity into the industry!

PopCap is hiring!

I work for PopCap San Francisco, and must say it's been a very positive and rewarding experience. We have a small tightly knit group, zero ego and the hunger to create entertainment. If anyone is interested please shoot me a message or check out the website!

Currently we're looking for a UI Lead and an Animation Lead, but are always looking for top talent. The job descriptions for these positions have been posted to the site.

Paperwings Podcast

I've been working on my film portfolio and Chris and Lora's podcast has been an invaluable resource! I think any artist could find it useful and I'd highly recommend checking it out.

Old PopUp Idea

I had this idea with a buddy of mine and we're shelving it for now, so I thought I'd share. It was to take known stories and make ipad popup books, actually painting and scanning in paper cutouts to build in 3d.

My studio has been acquired!

I've been with studio ZipZapPlay for about eight months and now we are no more...as in no longer called ZipZapPlay! Our studio is being acquired by one of the biggest names in gaming: PopCap Games! We will soon be PopCap San Francisco :)

For anyone not in touch with the gaming industry, PopCap had created many popular games like Bejeweled, Peggle, Bookworm, and more recently Plants vs Zombies. I've always enjoyed their games and how smart they are there... I am very happy!
