Will has been working in the industry for six years and is the knowledge base and driver of our studio. He keeps things rolling and generates new ideas everyday. Being our primary designer Will spends long hours lit by only his screen developing levels and working with our programmers, while Pat sleeps soundly, definitely the extrovert in our team. He is happy to stop and talk about gaming and is known for his good cooking; keeping the team fed and ready to go!
Patrick was born and raised here in the Seattle area. He spends most of his time running around town meeting with clients and working in the background so the rest of the team can focus on our projects. He is our general go to guy who lives for doing different things every day. He wears many hats (literally & figuratively) here at Ravens Bard and can even be seen around town at events! If you catch glimpse of him around be sure to give him a chat.
