As some of you may know, I have been working for Telltale Games as a sound designer where my final position was Audio Lead for Minecraft Story Mode. You may also be aware that Telltale had to make some hard choices and proceeded with layoffs. I am saddened and humbled to report that I was one of those laid off. As a result, I am currently seeking an in-house opportunity. Feel free to contact me here or through my Linkedin account with leads and offers. My time at Telltale will be sorely missed. The company afforded me the ability to grow professionally, and the friendships I made will forever be a bright memory. Thank you, Telltale. I wish you the best.
