Our enterprise is to build a digital toolkit that transports you to our land in the past, a rich virtual world and accurate recreation of the land that our ancestors once walked for many years. It’s a chance to make a change. It’s challenging and difficult to do, but I enjoy problem solving.

I have a great team of software developers, designers and artists and we all work together and collaborate to make what we think is a pretty amazing cultural heritage survival game.
