Ross N is an Audio Engineer at Realtime Worlds. "I do everything you hear in the game". A network of contacts was important for Ross "at the end of the day I didn't really think I needed a piece of paper... Getting the first job that gave me the break was just from working in the music shop, I always sort of saw it as just a stepping stone but it gave me the opportunity to meet that guy and get to know him and then ask him about if there was any jobs".
