Happy New Year!
Well, here we go. As per tradtion, I was watching "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year" and I couldn't help but notice t hat Maria Carey looks pretty darned good with a little extra on her.
Anyway, it's going to be a heck of a year for my family as we move to a new country. New Year's resolutions to come...

One has been cancelled, the rest are rockin' right along. I haven't really been working on UO for over a year, unfortunately. But on the flip side, I've gotten to work with some of the best people in the industry on some of the biggest titles, including lots of NextGen console online projects. For those who pay close attention, you'll have noticed that one of the hats I've been wearing is Live Producer for Battlefield 2 Modern Combat on Xbox and PC.
So, it's bittersweet for me, but MMOs continue to call and I eventually have to answer.

I have to admit I love the travel, but I hate being away from the kiddos. Next time, they might all be on the plane with me. :)
Wondering what I'm up to? Here's a hint:
