Rob started up Birdlight Games in 2015 while working full-time and working on his Master’s . Our motto at Birdlight Games is “Imagination, Creation, Connection.” We are about using our creativity to design games that bring people together.
Meet the Team
Rob – The Visionary. Owner of Birdlight Games, Rob is a senior science teacher who loves making games. Ever since elementary school he has been designing games but his game creation career really sparked in university and continued thereafter in earnest. He is a lifelong lover of games, strategy, music, science and food. Rob’s first two games were Friend or Foe (2015) and Monkey (2016) and that just got the ball rolling.
Jenny – Partner Extraordinaire. Jenny is a registered nurse and an accomplished artist who Rob feels lucky to be married to. As Rob works with artists and “plays” with photoshop, Jenny sees the big picture (ie. she knows what’s actually going on!). All things done well are shared and Jenny has not only made Birdlight Games possible but also beautiful (and functional ).
Nathan – Playtester Extraordinaire. Nathan is a gamer at heart. Whether it’s Ammos, Superheroes, or Hatted Spectres, Nathan’s always ready for a wild time at the game table. Cheers to this playtester extraordinaire!
Kara – The Turks, Kare-bears. No game looks the same after the Turks has had her say. Kara makes all things more enjoyable and totally whacky! This Turkey is all about fun and mischief.
Eve – PixiePoo, Pickaroo, Pickaroo-diddle-ee-doo. No one can anticipate the force that this gentle rock-star is going to bring to the Birdlight Games team. Go Pick-a-Roodle-y-Doodle!
Zoe – The Collector. Zoe is what every company needs: A cheer-leader for everything Birdlight Games imagines or produces. She has been an avid playtester, and an enthusiastic supporter in all things. Zoe has actually collected nearly everything Birdlight Games has ever made :). Cheers to Zoe who energizes all our work!
David – The Bearded Joy-bringer. Game Designer & First Fellow of Birdlight Games, David is a Grade 9 teacher, a unicyclist, ultramarathoner, and lover of games. He playtested the earliest iterations of Monkey & Friend or Foe , as well as offered suggestions, and greatly enjoyed Rob’s creative output as they grew up together. David has recently started to delve into game making. Look forward to interesting & exciting games from him in the future!
Jetaime – The Malaysian Invasion. Game Designer and Translator, Jetaime was a high school Mandarin teacher in Malaysia and recently got married to a Canadian. She is a dreamer & an imaginative soul who loves to think about the possibilities of life. She has a back- ground in journalism and enjoys asking questions. She takes delight in meeting new friends who are on the road & travelling the world (a clue to the game she has begun designing 😉).
Aaron – The Poet. Writer and Philosopher, Aaron is a pastor who pushes us all to consider the thinky thoughts behind what we do at Birdlight Games. Check his writings out HERE.
