Hi, I'm Brian Shih. I've been making games at Pocket Gems since 2011. I've worked on everything including running our live casual games, central infrastructure, and new IP development. Before this I was a product manager at Google, where I worked on Google Reader (RIP), and Google Finance. I live in San Francisco, California.
I'm passionate about gaming of all kinds – PC, console, mobile, and tabletop – and believe that gaming is eating culture. I also love history, science fiction & fantasy, notetaking & todo-list software, and Dr Pepper. Seriously, Dr Pepper was the signature drink at our wedding.
You can find me at @bshih on Twitter.
Some other fragments of my existence on the internet include:
- Investments on Angel.co (personally and via our Olin College syndicate Parcel B)
- Lamenting the death of Google Reader and talking about the Game Developers Conference
- A few older DJ mixes on Mixcloud
- Proof that I really liked hats in Team Fortress 2
