Client’s Testimonials

Ian Dominguez

Craig is the game development equivalent to Nick Fury. He knows talent, he builds teams, directs the action, assesses every situation, and whatever the project needs, start-to-finish, he’s the guy you want in the room.

Thomas Gatewood

Craig is the gold-standard of Producers. He is an absolute master of communication, relationships, structure, and motivation. He has the amazing ability to get consistently stellar work out of his team on a daily basis- even during a otherwise-frustrating crunch. He knows how to drive people to be successful and adapt to any type of personality.

Chelsea Howe

Craig is a lifesaver. He came onto a project that had seen a carousel of vision holders with limited production know-how and within weeks brought stability, a release feature set, and an array of industry best practices. Despite being halfway through development, there was a tangible shift in how the team worked and felt. Craig boosted morale, reduced pivots, and handled the overhead so everyone else could buckle down and get it done. I can’t see the pieces coming together without him.

Veronica Gonzalez

Craig is one of the best coworkers I’ve had in my career. He’s knowledgeable without being arrogant; has fantastic interpersonal skills and drives conversations with ease; trusts the people he hires and expects the very best from them; he listens, asks important questions, and pinpoints key solutions. He’ll get his hands dirty in development but never loses sight of the big picture.
