Alumnus Talks about his Graphics and Video Game Company

You might want to hear from one of our successful alumni, Chris King. He will be speaking on Monday evening, 5:30PM, February 21st, at an event called "Midnight Innovation - Celebrating Engineering, Computing, and Entrepreneurship" as part of our Engineer's Week celebrations. Mr. King, along with his partner Michael Sechrest, have been described as the classic innovator in video gaming, and more recently Avatar-like visual effects (see here). He has created in the ten years since graduating a very successful company in the video game middleware industry, which is now moving into cinema special effects with resounding accolades. Chris will share his and Michael's adventures with our students and faculty in this session.

Pizza and soft drinks will be provided.

Chris will be joined by Jeff McElroy, Al Quick, and James Clark (from Bang Technologies, Inc.) who have served on USC's Research Foundation Board and have been long-time supporters of USC CEC. They will also be joined by Dean Kress and Richard Robinson, both builders of the Faber Entrepreneurship Center @ USC.
