This new video game takes place more than 100 years before Harry Potter lived. Some of the inspiration for the music came from questions like, “What if there was an older melody that might have been an earlier version of Hedwig’s Theme by John Williams? What might music from this time period sound like?”
Take a minute to check it out this amazing new music and give a listen to what talented people can do when they work together!
It’s crazy to see my name listed next to so many amazing people in the credits!
What many people don’t realize is the many sacrifices that took place that led me to this project.
As this opportunity presented itself to be part of the Hogwart’s Legacy Harry Potter Music project, I found out that my business partner at my software company Kadince
that I founded was having emotional issues caused by a variety of factors. These led to disagreements in ways to treat employees, treat each other, run the business and the ability for me to have flexibility to work on music when I wasn’t working. The idea of spending time on music which at that time was my hobby, led to disagreements that reached a boiling point and eventually led to me exiting the company.
While I loved serving my friends in the banking industry and I had never intended to sell my ownership shares and leave, the decision to move on and leave a toxic environment has led to many doors being opened. It gave me the opportunity to spend more time growing my music career and because of that decision I’ve been able to have my music heard by millions of people around the world.
The doors leading to music opportunities would not have presented themselves had I stayed in my software company. Leaving was the most painful experience I’ve lived through so far in my life. The scars caused by my business partner may never fully heal, but I am happier now because of the decision to move forward to new opportunities and people to serve.
I’m proud of the work my team did at Kadince and proud of the impact my software has had. For those not familiar with the software, it allows organizations to track their community impact. I never expected that my idea for tracking service would lead to more than three million hours of volunteer service at more than 200,000 organizations and more than a half billion dollars in community support requests being submitted.
I’ve included a snapshot of the impact our software has had on others by tracking community service and donations.
