Aaron Stackpole: I actually interviewed for two jobs at Valve, first as a level designer where I did get to see an early version of Half-Life. --Barnz (talk) 17:37, 22 October 2016 (BST)

Travis Brady's years of employment[edit]

The article currently refers to Brady's LinkedIn (which requires signing in to check, and I don't have a profile there, so I'm not sure if the info is even still there), and says he was employed since Nov 1999 to Jan 2002. However, on his Artstation profile he wrote down that he's been with Valve between Jan 1998 and Jan 2001, and with Bungie between Jan 2001 and Jan 2015. Which source should take precedence?

I'm more inclined stick with the LinkedIn dates as it includes more information, suggesting he put a little more effort into filling it out. His ArtStation lacks his employment before Valve which LinkedIn states was at Sierra On-Line. The months there still don't make sense, though, since his stated time at Valve overlaps with Bungie. The only real way to be certain is probably to just ask him, but for now, the article is accurately citing a sufficient source, and the discrepancy is a result of his own reporting which isn't significant enough to make an explicit note about in the text.
For future reference, this is what Travis' LinkedIn states:
  • Sierra On-Line - Art Director
    Jun 1992 - Jun 1999
    Bellevue, Washington
  • Valve corporation - 3D Artist
    Nov 1999 - Nov 2002
    Bellevue, Washington
  • Bungie - Senior 3D Artist
    Jun 2002 - Jun 2015
    Bellevue, Washington
  • Highwire Games - Character Art Director
    Jun 2015 - Present
