      J Allard is a brilliant technology evangelist and engineer, not a marketing shill. No offense to marketing folks, but he’s overqualified.

      No doubt he’s VERY popular in the community, but this is probably below his pay grade.🙂

    I think Mr Sark, aka Scott Robison (or Roberson) would be a really good fit. He recently left Machinima and he really is one of the most unique, and very personable individuals out there in the gaming community. I think his twitter handle is @Mr_Sark

    You should VERY MUCH check out my app. Plus, I sent you an email a few months back about some ideas I have… to get started. I sent it through my same contact email address on the app, so you should be able to search and find it.

    I think we could start to make some MAJOR things happen, no pun intended… but bolded for humor-sake.

      Did I mention that I’m an expert level gamer with a reputation? (just to add to my qualifications)

      In Texas, I’m somebody. However, it’s difficult to be anybody (known) outside of Texas when you’re deep IN Texas. It’s a whole other country in here.

    These are great opportunities, I would really like to be apart of Team Major Nelson, so I did apply and hope that maybe I am well suited for it, and hope to bring even more awareness and build the Xbox community even higher than it is today.

    If you are willing to move to the other side of the globe, sure, as long as US immigration is ok with it. I’m guessing you’d have to jump trough some hoops there.

    Though somehow I don’t think my SO would be very thrilled about it.

      it always depends on condition, that is why he ask. Some company pay for people moving to their place. It’s a pretty common procedure, still not always the case. The question is legit and should be answer by microsoft. Plus, having a visa to work require some paperwork from the company too, that i’m sure microsoft is used to, so they can state if they would accept/help in those kind of situation. Since it’s pretty sure they will get hundreds of people locally to get the job, it’s very unlikely they go internationnal, unless you have done exactly the same job with other company and they want YOU
