I was invited to speak as the keynote at the first annual Game Space AV, a gaming conference held June 26th and 27th, 2015 at the Louis Millet Community Centre, in New Minas, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Game Space AV (Annapolis Valley).

Keynote Speech:

With the arrival of Sam Robichaud (was with Longtail Studios) and Stephen Brown (of Game Radiator), I decided to invite them on stage to do an indie game developer's panel. It worked out well for all the students to ask away with their questions. I hope we helped with good advice!



(Unfortunately I have no photos of the event. I hope to update this post in the future!)


Much thanks to Valerie Kneen-Teed for organizing the event and inviting us to attend.

That is all!
