Some great news hit the trades today that I’m excited to finally share. Effective this month I’ll be joining Hasbro in a non-exclusive position. Acting as a Creative Consultant for all boys’ IPs is pretty much a dream position for an 80s kid like me. I grew up on Transformers and GI Joe, so to get to play in that sandbox and help grow those worlds (and others) feels like the kind of gig you can only land if you’ve made a deal with Zoltar.
For those of you who asked on Twitter and the Ratchet & Clank group what will happen to my feature work, the simple answer is “nothing” – that will continue. But when I’m not hammering away on the feature stuff, I’ll be with the talented folks at Hasbro helping to shape their already-amazing worlds. I can’t say much beyond that, but trust me when I say it’s an exciting time over there.
Hope to have more for you soon…
PS: To clarify on the press release, I was the Senior Writer on the R&C franchise for 7 years, but I did not create the franchise. That honor goes to Insomniac CEO Ted Price and Chief Creative Officer Brian Hastings.
