I’ve been at Crystal Dynamics for an amazing 5 years, most recently as an Executive Producer on Rise of the Tomb Raider. I’ve been in the industry for 24 years, and immediately prior to joining Crystal I worked at EA’s Visceral and Maxis studios. While I greatly enjoyed my time there, Crystal had the allure of being on the verge of a dramatic rebirth. This was both in its work to reboot an iconic gaming franchise with Tomb Raider 2013, and also culturally refocusing as a studio that puts the player’s quality gaming experience first. It’s been a fantastic creative challenge that I’m proud to say we’ve risen to achieve. Looking to the future, I’m thrilled to take the next steps of growing our studio and expanding our portfolio, while continuing to foster an environment where our developers can learn and grow as they craft beloved products.
