Boarding Flight Jet Morgan

Jet Morgan Games

On Thursday I started my new position as Producer at Jet Morgan Games (my title was originally to be “Managing Producer”, but I insisted on just being called “Producer” until there were other producers for me to manage.

The whole thing happened rather quite suddenly. I answered an ad on LinkedIn about ten days ago and sent in my resume. The next day I received a call from the owner, who after a brief conversation with me, invited me to come into the office a couple of days later.

The office, housed in a building that appeared to be originally designed for medical offices, is located in Rolling Hills Estates, a very wealthy community along the beach, just south of Los Angeles. It was a long drive for me, fifty miles one-way, about ten miles of which is surface streets. However, I’ve long since given up the dream of working anywhere close to home.

The company was currently comprised of six people — the owners, Chris and Jenn Cutltr, and four employees. Chris interviewed me for about an hour, telling me that he and his wife were originally employees at Mattel, and then they went off to form their own company, creating casual games and websites for Mattel and other clients. At the end of our talk, he introduced me to the rest of the group, and I made the trek back home.

The next day Chris made me a job offer, and I accepted it. Although the drive was horrendously long and the company was much smaller than I was used to, I thought that they could really use my help to grow. Plus, they were about to start work on a large project for a big-name client that was just too good to pass up…
