Gage has been making games for 17 years, with experience on a broad range of platforms and genres. Gage began his career as a software engineer, and has been fortunate to be a part of great development teams at Blizzard, Electronic Arts, and Ensemble Studios. On those teams, he was a key contributor to blockbuster titles including StarCraft and Age of Mythology.
Realizing that there was a paradigm shift on the horizon, Gage relocated to Beijing to explore emerging business models that would go on to shape the entertainment ecosystem that we know today. Gage was an early advocate of mobile, free-to-play, and games-as-a-service. In China, he founded and scaled multiple venture-backed studios around these business models and guided them to successful mergers with American, European, and Asian multi-nationals. Most recently, Gage served as General Manager and VP at 6waves.
