Licensing Director, Gearbox Publishing
It’s hard to answer what inspires me, because I never really have time to notice that I need inspiration. Between the people on my team, the players, the stories and characters in the games and little kids who want to hear about our jobs… the inspiration never really stops. I’m also personally driven to see how far I can go and how much I can touch, and of course I love the life that this industry lets me live.
Founder & CEO, EAT
I was always inspired by the power of good design and stories that should be told. More than that, functional design that makes people’s lives better. In the gaming industry, I’m able to find both, and work with people who are truly passionate for what they do, which is so powerful.

Embrace and understand the qualities that make you - as an individual, as a working professional, a contributor to the industry and space - unique. Treat yourself as a business. As a brand. And, of course, read books, be professional, show up, and don’t be an asshole.
