Leaving Club Penguin

As of October 2010, he no longer works for Club Penguin.[4]

I left Club Penguin and the Walt Disney Company to spend more time with my family, and work on new projects. I had worked on Penguin Chat and Club Penguin for 10 years. It was time for something new. After I finished training the team at Club Penguin (2007-2009) there was nothing else for me to do. It was time to start something new. I actually spent last summer helping a friend farm. Farming is awesome.
— Rsnail, March 2011.[5]

It was later revealed that he left Club Penguin to work on his new project, Mech Mice.
