I'm Brian 👋. I'm a game dev, hacker, and entrepreneur. I'm a happily married husband and father of four amazing humans, plus one Bernese mountain dog.
Until recently I serve as the Head of Americas for Krafton where I oversaw finance, HR, operations, publishing & other regional activities like esports, studio management, and more.
Prior to that I was founder & CEO of a development studio called MadGlory where we built features for games that delivered fun to millions of players.
Before that I've was CTO for several different companies including Major League Gaming, Overdog, and Agora Games.
Check out my work history, if you're interested.
These days I'm not doing anything! Well, not exactly. After years of midnight phone calls, I'm taking a short break from fulltime employment. However, I'm definitely not one to relax.
I spend my time as an Angel Investor (working closely friends at Konvoy Ventures) as well as working on a few different game related startup concepts. I'm still a proficient developer, so it's been fun to start a few new projects without a launch date in mind. I'm not quite ready to commit to one full time yet, but hope to soon.
My best friend Mitch and I (along with good friends at Velan Studios, Warner Brothers and Blizzard Albany) are on a mission to grow the Upstate NY game development cluster. Currently there are around 600 game devs here and we hope to grow that number to around 6000 over the next decade.
For my part I'm helping that effort along by building a rural game accelerator in an old firehouse near the town where I live. Come visit!
In my spare time I like to collect strange hobbies. This year I tried my hand at beekeeping (along with my friend Glenn Fiedler). I'm currently learning the Anglo Concertina.
Did I mention I'm passionate about games? I think I did. Here are a few of the most memorable ones I've worked on:
- Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
- League of Legends
- PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
But wait, there's more!
Fin. The end. Want to chat? Say hi on Twitter.
