There is nothing that I value more than [my instructors'] guidance, wisdom, and friendships. They always raised the bar and then helped me to reach it. Hunter Lawson , Software Developer at Terrific Studios

Software Developer at Terrific Studios

Hunter Lawson is a software developer at Terrific Studios, a company that assists clients to create and successfully implement games. Based in Houston, he’s responsible for programming the foundational systems for the various projects at the studio. Hunter enjoys the challenges of his career and says that the best part of his job is having the ability to bring an experience to life and put it into the hands of someone else. “It’s about as magical as it can get.”

Hunter believes that creative people can change tomorrow’s world. And he adds that there’s “nothing on this planet that I would want to do more than what I am doing right now.” Looking to the future of his industry, Hunter states that virtual and augmented reality will become more and more integrated into daily life. “That, mixed with our increasingly powerful phones, is definitely going to change the way we live.”

Hunter, who in 2014 earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Game Art & Design from The Art Institute of Austin, says that his instructors provided real-world experience that helped him to transition into his current job. “There is nothing that I value more than their guidance, wisdom, and friendships. They always raised the bar and then helped me to reach it. I hope to one day be able to carry that on to students of my own.”
