Hi

Thanks for swinging by. As you can see, this is my first post to the new Bounding Box Games dev blog. Hopefully what I post here will be of interest to people who come here as well as a way for me to get a little better at what I do by thinking more deeply about things related to game development while I write. I'm planning on discussing various topics related to XNA, XBLIG, Windows Phone and whatever else I encounter that seems relevant  during my work on Bounding Box Games projects. I'll be doing my best to keep up with any comments or questions people have while I'm at it.

Bounding Box Games LLC is a small operation right now. It's just me trying to make this crazy thing work. I'm thankful to have a very supportive and understanding wife who could see how important it was to me to leave the comfort and security of a great job to try to make this happen. It wasn't easy to take that first step, in fact I wasn't really sure I was ready for it until one day at work I realized I was at the perfect time between projects where I wasn't going to be letting anyone down by leaving and the emerging Windows Phone market was looking very interesting to me. It seemed like an opportunity would be wasted if I didn't try, right then. So here I am!
