'''Douglas R. Wood''', or simply known as '''Doug Wood''', is an animator. He has been working in the gaming industry since 1994.http//www.valvesoftware.com/company/people.html Company People on Valve's official website

==Biography==
Doug joined Valve in 1997 and has been working on the Half-Life series ever since. Before Valve, Doug worked at Apogee/3Drealms where he worked on Duke-Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior and Prey (before everyone left) and the Plutonium/Atomic Edition for Duke. Before 3DRealms, he worked for Origin down in Austin. As far as we know, Doug is the only member of Valve who has ever been a Guardian Angel in New York City.

He is responsible for many of Half-Life's scripted sequences, including tentacles that pull unsuspecting scientists through the ceiling,http//web.archive.org/web/19980216132320/http//valvesoftware.com/people.htm http//valvesoftware.com/people.htm and headcrabs that turn humans into zombies.http//web.archive.org/web/19990220144204/http//www.sierrastudios.com/games/half-life/archives.html Half-Life News

As a character animator, Doug helped shape the Source engine's animation system, focusing on techniques which allow animators and designers to quickly create and modify choreo scenes.''http//animex.tees.ac.uk/archive/animex2009/speakers_details.cfm?speaker_id=222 Animex''
