Impressions Games

I was one of two people hired to join the president of this UK-based games studio as he opened its US office. I took on nearly every role outside of taking tech support calls, including public relations, marketing and sales support, documentation writing and editing, office management, and quality assurance. Through my QA work I earned my first design and producing roles, and my greatest contributions were to these three games.
