I am the co-founder of Smiling Buddha Games and Komi Games Inc, console-focused indie game publisher and development studio (respectively). Our most recent game, Use Your Words, launched in April 2017. We are currently publishing Reptoid Games' "Fossil Hunters" for Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as Massive Damage's "Halcyon 6" for Nintendo Switch.
Previously I was Director of Technology at DHX Media, overseeing development of all of our interactive digital media. Additionally, I acted as Assistant Project Director at Silicon Knights, being responsible for helping ship the cross-platform X-Men Destiny (X360, PS3, Wii) and prior to that was the CEO and co-founder of Frozen North Productions, an independent third-party game developer based in Toronto, Canada. In that capacity, I managed and grew the company and oversaw the development of Flip's Twisted World (Wii), Jumbuck's Chocolate Factory (DSi), Dragon's Lair (XBLA), and a canceled 3DS title, among many other contract development projects.
