At the start of February I moved from Vancouver, Canada to Stockholm, Sweden!

Last year was a traumatic year for me with the death of my beloved wife Barbara to brain cancer in July.  As five of the six years we were married were spent in Vancouver there are many happy memories there but there are unpleasant memories too.

I felt it was time for a new adventure so the opportunity to work with the awesome folk at DICE on the Frostbite engine was an opportunity that I felt I’d regret if I didn’t give it a shot.  Plus I’d always wanted to learn another language, as something about thinking in multiple languages has always intrigued me.

Leaving the friends I’ve made  and the colleagues I’ve worked with in the five years I spent in Vancouver behind has been hard.  Yet exploring Stockholm and meeting new people has been interesting so far!
