New studio Traega Entertainment settles in Nashville
A new studio setting up isn’t always newsworthy, but there’s some real talent behind it. Founder Dax Hock has limited experience, working in QA for several years at Funcom, but his team has some impressive credits to their name. Senior programmer David Ollman worked on Ashes of Empire and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks while director of technology Martin Livesey has worked on Company of Heroes 2 and Star Wars: Rebellion. Meanwhile, head of marketing and business development Michael Micholic has worked on various brand management roles at Ubisoft, with work on Far Cry, Prince of Persia and Rayman.
