Gord Cooper's Blog



Here's a shortish wall of text for you to climb, where I talk about the stuff I've done.  I assume you didn't come here by accident, so you'd be delighted to know all about my work at EA Sports on SSX, and the titles I've worked on at IUGO Mobile Entertainment, like the Animal Academy series of games, Sunshine Cruise Lines, and the blockbuster hit 'Knights & Dragons' for our partner, GREE Inc.!

I've recently packed up my desk and moved over to DeNA Vancouver, and I'm loving every minute. A studio that rewards creativity and design, check out our games!

Please be sure to check out my story Without You, as well - I worked a long time to craft it to where it's at, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Throw me some feedback, I'll throw you the whip!

Also, see me here at LinkedIn and Check out my portfolio!
