"I am excited to work on Education Endeavor to help create nonviolent and educational games. My work mainly consisted of what my clients wanted, which was warriors, creatures and weapons. I look forward to this opportunity with EE to build characters and objects that are nonviolent and weapons-free while making them attractive for children to play. This will be an exciting challenge for me."
