How Can I Help You?

I am a Game Executive and Leadership Expert with over 15 years of experience at renowned companies such as Gameloft, Wooga, Rovio, Voodoo, and PlayStation. Throughout my career, I have built studio and people's departments, guided teams through transformative change, launched games, and ran Live Ops.

In 2021, I founded Rise and Play, a network of conscious leaders within the gaming industry who champion a human-centric and sustainable approach to both games and business. I have remained dedicated to this mission, collaborating closely with co-founders and gaming leaders to continually push the boundaries of what we define as "games" and how we can create them in a sustainable way.
