Fred's focus is on building out the company into a well-balanced operation of motivated, passionate, experienced people who work well together to make great games and make a difference in the world. He is carefully crafting all global branding for Portalarium and its products as he has done for several top game studios/publishers in the past as an exec with NCsoft, ORIGIN / Electronic Arts and MicroProse Software back in the day, plus many other entertainment companies in the fields of radio, television, cable television, print, music and retail.
As a restless gamer, Fred plays "hundreds of different games a little bit," trying to stay on top of the market and trends, and to kill time he doesn't have. He lives in Downtown Austin where he never sleeps because he is actively engaged in community affairs and busy bicycling, kayaking and absorbing loads of the rich local music scene. A political refugee from Poland as a kid, Fred is the least technically proficient member of the team but the only one with a college degree; the rest of the guys try not to hold that against him.
