I am inspired by the way gaming brings us together through friendly competition and the pursuit of one objective. Gaming unites people through a common goal, helps them connect through teamwork, and inspires innovative thinking.
As the Chief Operating Officer for EA Studios, I lead initiatives that support our world-class creatives and developers. EA Studios is an amazing and innovative collective of more than 6,000 creators at over 20 studios worldwide. We bring some of the most beloved game franchises in the world to life including:†EA SPORTS FIFA, Battlefield, Apex Legends, The Sims, Madden NFL, Need for Speed, Titanfall,†and†Plants vs. Zombies†among others.
With over 15 years in the industry, Iíve held leadership roles within various innovative organizations. Most recently, I was responsible for operations at Amazon Game Studios, where I led their games division operations, grew the studio teams, and drove the creation of tech and commerce capabilities for their games. Prior to that, I was with 2K, working on franchises such as Borderlands, Civilization, and NBA 2K, and building a publishing structure to match their needs.†
