Leo's News

Many of my friends have already heard this, but it's time to put a note on the board. I'm moving to Japan in the next few weeks!

I've been fascinated with Japan and Japanese culture for many years, and have been keeping an eye out for a chance to move to Japan for awhile. An opportunity came up to help out at Polygon Pictures, a Japanese CG house which is run by a friend through SIGGRAPH activities, Shuzo Shiota, so I'll be leaving my current job and moving to Japan over the next few weeks.

I'm really excited about finally getting a chance to put my (rudimentary) Japanese skills to work, and to learn a lot more about the culture and the people. I'm finishing up work here in the U.S. this Friday, 3Nov06, and I expect to actually move within a couple weeks after that. Stay tuned here for more updates!

Stuff Going Out

Yesterday afternoon/evening I had a "Come Take My Stuff" party. It was great to hang with the crew and to see a few folks I haven't seen in forever (Karen and KT!) before heading off to Japan.

...I still have most of my stuff, though. Looks like a storage unit for sure!
