Hey there, I'm Ryan McSweeney! Here's a little snippit of my soul...
I'm a New England boy, born and raised in central CT, earning my higher education in Northern VT on Lake Champlain, and living in Providence RI and Boston MA during my working years. Autumn is my favorite season, and I've seen the best of it growing up and living here.
While I can be a homebody, I love getting out into the city for a night of good food & drink, entertainment, and dancing. Escaping to nature is pretty important for me to do on the regular as it allows me to further appreciate my surroundings. The picture of me below was taken at the Grand Canyon! I enjoy longboarding, rollercoasters, spicy food, and laughing.
I grew up on a healthy mix of the Super Mario Bros series and Rare's golden age of games on the N64, so I'm very excited for Banjo Kazooie's spiritual successor, Yooka-Laylee! I gradually expanded my gaming interests into RPGs, RTSs, FPSs, MOBAs, and tabletop games including Dungeons & Dragons and board games!
And here I am! I've been working in the game industry for about five years now, most recently working at Turbine. I love the industry and all the amazing personalities and oppourtunities it has to offer!
