Lisa Brown's Blog
Lisa Brown is a game designer at Insomniac Games and a graduate of Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center. Outside of work she loves to participate in game jams and mentor aspiring developers through various means, including Game Mentor Online. She spent the past few months streaming development on Slow Down, Bull at Insomniac.
