Scott Hartsman, VP Production. Scott has led the production of MMOs that have totaled over $1B in aggregate revenue. He has been a leader in the MMO space since the early Gemstone days.

Entrepreneurial game maker, able to operate at a high level as well as in the trenches. Product, customer, and results-focused. Knowledge of online services from end-to-end.
My favorite aspect of what I do is to help set up structures that work with as little overhead as possible, get great owners and problem solvers into position, support and coach them where needed, and help them excel.
