Principal Game Development Consultant & Game Development Team Lead

Ryan leads our dev team, focusing on scouting out the best programmers in the industry! We think he’s working here mostly to get his hands on new Lord of the Rings VR experiences as soon as they come out although, with his level of knowledge, maybe he should be helping make them instead! He is one of the few people on the team that is a born and bred Brightonian. In fact, he has never moved far - to the point where the last time he moved, it was only 2 doors down from his old place!
