MrMike (2006-2008)

After years of learning lessons and working for one studio at a time I decided to go freelance, and hopefully pass on some of this knowledge to others. It was amazingly rewarding work, and I got the chance to work with teams all over the world. My travels took me to Paris, Hamburg, and Helsinki. I got the chance to pitch AAA first person shooters, help teams grow, develop their technology, and many other things. My clients included Arkane Studios, NCSoft Austin, Unit9, and Emergent Game Technologies.

In early 2008 I was contacted by my friends at Red Fly Studio in Austin, Texas. They needed someone to help with scheduling and producing the final stages of Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars, for the Wii. After Mushroom Men wrapped up Red Fly offered me a full time job as Executive Producer - I gladly accepted.
