Job Update + Zaw Pizza

Several people have asked me how I’ve been enjoying my new game development job. Well, I really like it and I’ve been learning a ton! 🙂 It’s a small start-up company, so it’s just me and two other developers.

Nick and I spent the morning taking a load of boxes over to the house and setting up some things there. It’s really starting to feel like home. … Continue reading »

We walked around Alki Beach … Continue reading »

Suki is a 14-year-old pug and she is having a hard time walking right now, so she was pushed around in a stroller (lots of people commented about how cute … Continue reading »
