An Epic Change of Venue


In November I started at Epic Games in North Carolina, joining Jeremy Ernst and his team to focus on high quality characters and related technologies. For quite some time I have been enamored with not only the decisions and business practices of Epic, but the engine itself. Whether it’s putting the code on github, or the deep implementations of things like Blueprint; I am constantly amazed that they seem to remain focused, always putting the user first.

Look for some cool things coming down the pipe this year, we have an amazing team of really talented people, and an huge user-base that spans all industries.

Not many people know that I was born in South Carolina, I grew up in Florida and went to school in Georgia. I always felt a bit out of place on the West Coast, it’s great to finally be back to a place that feels like home.

    Looking forward to see all the work you and the rest of the epic guys will bring in the engine regarding rigging/animation.

  2. Congrats on your new gig, Chris! You’ve moving from one terrific engine to another! Why oh why didn’t you go work for Unity to raise the visual bar over there!!! 😀
