IMG_6947

Well another GDC successful, fun, inspiring and energizing! The game industry is one of the most special group of people in the world. The medical industry, the military complex, even banking and service industries all benefit from the accomplishments and innovations created by game developers around the world. I am proud of being part of such an amazing movement in human history! Games have changed the face of this planet and I'm honored to have met and befriended a ton of the developers and pioneers that made this possible. Walking the floor and getting stopped by everyone for hugs is a good feeling which always gives it a family reunion vibe, after so many GDCs I forget just how many people who I've met and worked with over the years. #love and #respect to you all! Until next shows!! #gameOn let's keep changing the landscape of technology and gaming together! #gdc2017

Doyle W. Donehoo and I are old school Cakewalk guys from back in the day! He's still one of the few composers in the world with one of the most advanced composition templates in the industry. Epic, huge, orchestral and bombastic, his cues and scores are memorable and dauntingly fantastic all at once. #cubase #cakewalk #gdc2017 #orchestral #warhammer40k

IMG_7123

Old school #brothers from back in the day! It's quite amazing to have witnessed #substance rise to total domination of the industry. It's still the best solution for procedural textures and stands alone as an artful accomplishment that will leave a legacy for the future. Sebastien Deguy it's an honor to know you as a friend, musician, scientist and doctor, I am sure you will wear many more hats as life continues onward! #respect #gdc2017 #textures #painting
