As the title says my name is Andrew Cook and i’m doing my masters in IT at QUT. This semester i switched majors from Games Production to Digital Environments, as not only have i recently migrated from the console games industry to web based gaming but i’ve also changed roles, namely switching from lead animator to project manager. It’s been a very exciting and challenging change for me, but one that has started to become really rewarding. I’m managing 2 to 3 times as many people and have up to 5 different projects running concurrently. Providing a well managed and collaborative work environment for my team is what drives me as well as working on projects that deliver intuitive and functional design.
So besides working and studying in the IT biz, my main interests lie in animation, cooking, craft beers and sports.
I’m really looking forward to this semester and to meeting most of you in INB/INN346.
