Hello, and thank you for checking out my Gamasutra Blog Posts. My name is Jools Watsham, and my official title is co-founder and director at Renegade Kid.
I started developing video-games professionally in 1992 as a 2D pixel artist in the UK, and since then have climbed the Donkey Kong ladder through the video-game industry as a designer, producer, director, and even dabbled with some audio and composition. I now reside in Austin, Texas.
My daily duties include game design, pixel art, production (planning, scheduling, and budgeting), UI design, and the overall creative direction of Renegade Kid's games.
