My name is Dustin. I am the CEO of Zee Gee Games, an Orlando based Social and Mobile game studio. I'm also the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the IGDA.
Since 2011, I've sat on the IGDA Board of Directors and served as the organization's Treasurer. Previously, I was the CEO of Zeitgeist Games, Inc, which was acquired in 2008.
My blog focuses on my interests in interactive entertainment, social media and other pressing issues in the developer community.
