My name is Ben and I am video game producer. “Producer? What is that?” you may ask. Well I’m the one that helps the team take care of all the little things that seem to crop up. It is my job to see the project as a whole, to be the first user of the game, to remove any roadblocks and to make sure the whole team is on the same page!
I love it! I got my undergraduate degree as a Computer Scientist with the intentions of becoming a game programmer. But once I learned I loved project management more than coding, I had an edge because I could talk shop with the engineers and turn around and communicate with the business side of what was needed. It was this niche that fueled my passion to be a video game producer.
I don’t take my self too seriously, and love to make people laugh. I believe everybody has a story to tell, and that story affects team dynamics. If I am able to understand each individual’s story I can more easily solve any problems that may arise. I love video games, I love working with people, and I love to see projects flourish and succeed. This is my dream job and I wouldn’t want to do anything else!
