Rudy’s fascination with mixing technology and storytelling began at age 10 when he mistakenly picked up the Micro-Adventure book Space Attack (he thought it was going to be about Star Wars).
That happy accident led him to graduate from McGill University in Computer Science and start a career in software development playing with a wide range of domains; everything from front-end web and mobile applications to backend systems, from procedural to reactive programming, from startup to enterprise. For 12 years he led teams at agile consulting shop Carbon Five from their Santa Monica office, working on exciting projects in Ruby, Node.js, iOS, Android, and more. Starting in July 2020, he took a leap into the gaming industry and joined Riot Games.
At the same time, Rudy has worked on many side-projects. He is best known as co-creator of the web series Galacticast and A Comicbook Orange and the mobile app Craft Check. Between them, they have garnered millions of downloads, the attention of mainstream media, awards and fans.
It should come as no suprise Rudy is an avid player of table-top games, especially role-playing games. He also follows the worlds of immersive theater and mixed reality and plans on using them to hack together his passions of story-telling and coding into wonderful worlds for people to play in.
