Dane Caruthers, the new Assistant Producer on Tabula Rasa, has posted an itroducory letter to the TR community.
Hi folks! My name is Dane Caruthers, and I'm the new Assistant Producer on Tabula Rasa. You should be seeing me up on the boards shortly, posting as Entropic. I've been working on TR since the beginning of 2007 as the QA Lead, and I'm very excited about moving into a new role.
A bit of background on me - After spending the previous decade in supervisory roles in retail and with the regional MHMR children's program, I jumped at the chance in 2000 to work for a video game company. I had always been passionate about gaming, and this was a welcome opportunity.
I started with Ion Storm Austin in 2000 working as a temp on Deus Ex. I became a lead within about 6 months, and stuck with Ion through Thief 3 and a number of other Eidos games until the studio shut down. I then spent a year doing QA on educational software and corporate training stuff, which is exactly as boring as it sounds. I landed at NCsoft in 2006 and worked on City of Heroes/Villains and on the PlayNC and QA teams until the Lead position opened up on TR.
