"So how do we help leaders grow? One vital step is to learn from those that have gone before us. Keith helps us do just that."
Foreword by Scott Crabtree, Happy Brain Science
Keith Fuller lives in Madison, Wisconsin with two fantastic daughters and a wife far more gorgeous than you'd expect a game developer to be seen with.
Keith began his video game career programming his Atari home computer in grade school, not too long after obtaining a high score of 103,000 on Pac-man (at the cost of approximately $2500 in quarters). Many years later after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a Computer Science degree he landed his first "real" job as a programmer at a small game company before moving to Raven Software in 1999.
After 12 years in AAA development shipping a dozen titles on eight platforms as a programmer, design manager, project lead, and producer, Keith started his own business, Fuller Game Production. As a production consultant he now works with game companies across the full spectrum of the industry, helping organizations of all sizes improve their leadership, studio management, and production practices.
