ATX Mobile & Indie Game Dev

In early 2013, I founded a meetup group focused on game development at independent studios and/or for new platforms (mobile, HTML5, wearables, microconsoles). The events feature talks by industry professionals and hobbyist developers with useful lessons in areas like engineering, marketing, game design, project management, fundraising, art, and audio production. I’m responsible for securing the space, booking speakers, lining up sponsors, promoting the events, and making strategic adjustments over time to maintain community engagement. The events are held monthly at Capital Factory, a startup space in downtown Austin. The group has now grown to over 750 members and our events are often at capacity. Below are some images from these events.


Between 2002 and 2012, I organized over 50 events for the Austin Museum of Digital Art. These shows were held at various locations in Austin, featured hundreds of musicians and artists from around the world, and were attended by thousands of people. I set the initial vision behind the Digital Showcase Series and made strategic adjustments over time to ensure continued success. I also oversaw a team of volunteers responsible for artist relations, equipment rental, front door logistics, audio/visual setup and operation, lighting, stage management, and teardown. The photos below (taken by Craig Washburn) document the results. More photos can be found here.
