Hi Paul,

I came across your background online and would love to connect with you. My name is Nicole Earnest-Payte and I am currently consulting with 2K Games and 2K Marin in Novato. We are working on Bioshock 2, the sequel to the higly acclaimed and award winning game of last year, and we are looking for two awesome animators to join our team (one senior and one junior). I am hoping either you or some folks you know may be interested in talking about the project??

I can be reached at or at 415-294-7700 x1. I look forward to chatting with you soon.
