Derek will be the “jack of all trades” member of the staff. As early as high school he was studying web design, graphic design, 3D animation, music, and photography. He continued to take quite a few courses on those subjects in college, and studied them on his own. All of those skills will be taken full advantage of here. His main title will be Sound Designer, basically editing or creating all the sounds and music for our games. He will also help to create game assets, run the website, and moderate the forums.
Derek, known almost exclusively as drok83 in the gaming community, has been a gamer his entire life, starting with the original Nintendo, all the way up to his current, custom built gaming pc. His taste in games varies from RTS, RPG, FPS, MMO, you name it, he’s played it. His unique taste in games, music, movies, etc. will help tremendously in the development in our games.
