Steamroller Spotlight: Meet Rashawn
Teamwork makes the dream work and at Steamroller Studios, we get to do a lot of amazing dream-worthy work. We love to brag about our Steamroller family and this month we’re highlighting Rashawn. Rashawn is one of our remarkably talented Riggers. We caught up with Rashawn recently and picked his big brain a bit.
Rashawn, when you’re not working, what do you do for fun?
Rashawn: Most of my time is spent playing Dungeons & Dragons with my friends. Whether it be being a player, engaging inside a story crafted by the dungeon master, or being a dungeon master, this is an activity that helps build my storying skills, creative output, and most importantly, my relationships within the game!
What’s the last movie you took in?
Rashawn: Marvel’s Shang-Chi from what I can remember.
What’s on that playlist of yours?
Rashawn: Good ole’ Hip Hop, R&B, New Jack, and of course some dang good video game OSTs!
What do you love about working at Steamroller?
Rashawn: What’s NOT to love about Steamroller Studios? The friendly work environment, engaging and challenging projects, many many opportunities for growth, my list goes on!
How do you get your head in a creative zone to do all of that fancy animation rigging stuff?
Rashawn: For my mind in particular, I just pick up the pen and start going. For me, nothing creative flows until I start the process, and then all these “What if…” ideas start to flow into my head. I get in the groove and I output as much as I can.
Tell us something that not a lot of people know about you?
Rashawn: I don’t come off as one upon first glance, but I’m a HUGE RPG nerd. Role Playing games are my go-to game genre. I enjoy the strategy, the challenge, and the proactive style of gameplay. I’m really into Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Dungeons & Dragons, Pokemon, Persona, and many more! People often joke that I’m a huge nerd in a body of a Quarterback 😀
What’s your favorite game of ALL time?
Rashawn: Hands down, it would have to be Final Fantasy IX.
Last random question, we promise. What’s your favorite food?
Rashawn: Jamaican Food
Rashawn, thank you so much for spending some time with us, and also, thank you for the amazing talent that you bring to the Steamroller Team. We’re so glad that you’re here.
