My wife Alleson and have embarked on an epic adventure!
I’ve been accepted to Carnegie Mellon’s Entertainment Technology Center, a world-class interactive media Masters program that pulls students from all around the globe. They bring the arts together with technology and develop amazing media experiences for companies like Microsoft, Oracle, and Electronic Arts, to name a few. Graduates of this program end up at places like Disney Imagineering and Pixar, or start their own companies. Oh, did I mention Anthony Daniels is on faculty?
In order to take advantage of this amazing opportunity, my wife and our puppy and I are moving from Portland, OR to Pittsburgh, PA. (Of course, once I saw how many international students are coming, this didn’t seem so far. But I might have the longest drive!) We set out on Monday and are about to begin the second leg of our trip.
Our first drive was from Portland to Post Falls, ID, where my dad’s parents live. We got to spend Tuesday with them, and had a wonderful time!
We were also treated to a home-BBQ steak dinner, and got to spend some time with my aunt and cousin. We played an easygoing game of dominoes, then spent the late evening buying some last camping goods and repacking our luggage. Thanks for a great time, Grandma and Grandpa! We love you!
