Change of Venue

I am now living in San Francisco! My last day at Crytek was October 31st, and it was pretty difficult for me as it is one of the best companies I have ever worked for. I have so much respect for all the guys that helped constantly push the envelope and make Crytek the renowned world player that it is today.

I started last week as a Creature TD at Industrial Light + Magic; about the only thing that could wrench me away from Frankfurt. I have always been so interested in creatures and anatomy, and, from a young age, considered ILM the best of the best when it came to these. I feel very lucky to be able to join another great team of people, and not only that, but learn so much from them on a daily basis.

I don’t know what effect that will have on this blog. I can continue to comment on games stuff, but, being a large company ILM is a lot more restrictive in what I can do (even in my spare time!) versus Crytek. Not to mention I will be very, very busy the next few months.

  4. Congrats on the new job. I hope that it won’t effect your blog too much, as it remains one of my favorites. I can imagine how difficult it must be to leave Crytek behind, but change is always good.
