Rodrigo is a classically trained composer and musician who specializes in orchestral music, chamber music, tango, latin american instruments, and music for film, theater, and games.
Trained in Mexico’s national conservatory and several european schools of music, his tangos and latin american compositions have been featured during Olympic Games routines, and in international festivals such as the Junger Künstler Bayreuth in Germany.
Rodrigo’s original projects include music for the plays “Una Historia del Diablo” and “El Gato, El Tiempo y la Otredad”; the art films “Luciana” and “El Aire es Dulce Aquí”, and the Opera “The Little Prince”.
He says "Music is my life. It has been with me since I was born and will be with me when I go. I think in music, dream in music. There is music all the time inside me, music that wants to be set free in the world. I cannot imagine a world without it. The moments when I write music are the moments when I find peace in a world that has none. Once I start, the process flows without much difficulty, because by the time I sit down to compose, I have already been working on the piece for a long time in my head. Composing music is not the work of a few hours, or of a day, it is something that the composer does all day, every day, even when you are doing other things. Music is my universe."

BAZINGA GAMES ADVISORS
Eric developed a passion for programming at an early age, and as a child spent far too much time indoors, making games purely for the joy of it. Professionally, Eric started off as a network engineer/engine programmer/tools designer, working at such studios as Walt Disney Imagineering (ToonTown Online), Cyan Worlds (Uru: Ages Beyond Myst), and ArenaNet (Guild Wars). At these studios, Eric developed world-scale MMO infrastructures and a range of leading-edge game engine technologies. Eric also worked closely with game designers to develop new authoring tools to reduce the friction involved in creating high-quality, story-driven gameplay atop these complex engines. But he didn't want to stop there, Eric wanted the tools themselves to be delightful and playful, while remaining streamlined and efficient. And, he wanted to make them available to everyone. This led him to do some experimentation outside the scope of these proprietary engines.
Eric's approach to designing game authoring tools led to an opportunity to join Microsoft Research and create the friendliest game engine ever made: Kodu Game Lab. Kodu enables anyone to create beautiful, modern, 3D games with no prior experience, using only an Xbox controller. Kodu was adopted by academic programs worldwide, and remains popular in schools and coding clubs today. After launching Kodu, Eric joined Microsoft Studios to build a Kodu-inspired AAA title called Project Spark. Spark was canceled soon after its release, and Eric moved on to work on a variety of things. He created a novel SDK for developing Mixed Reality apps in Node.js. He helped invent a new conversational AI platform: the Azure Bot Service. He even worked on a now-infamous chatbot that shall not be named.
Today, Eric develops Microsoft's learn-to-code product line, the "MakeCode" family of products, and consults with internal studios to find ways they can make their systems more accessible to aspiring coders and professional content creators alike.
