Alex Roycewicz

Game Designer

Alex is someone you’ll never understand completely, but finding out more is so much fun. He drove around for months with a bowling ball in his trunk – if you asked him why, he got a pained expression and said, “It’s a long story.” Eventually you stop asking these types of questions. He’s been late to work because he was stuck at the US Embassy. He can get you a toe, no problem. When he travels to South Korea, he breaks into apartments and sleeps on the floor. Now that he has a pilot’s license, it’s only going to get weirder.

Alicia Alunni

HR Generalist

Alicia grew up at Tower Records in Chicago then graduated to Apple Inc, and packed up her cats and boyfriend after the blizzard of 2011 in search of warm weather. She loves the undead and reads and watches enough scary stuff to feel confident that she would survive the zombie apocalypse.

This is not Brad Allen
This is his robot clone
He sends me to do his work all day while he runs off doing who knows what.
The only thing stopping me from killing him and taking his place is that then I’ll still have to do all his work. I hate him.
LONG LIVE THE MACHINES!

Bradley Snyder

Sound Designer

Hailing from the famous town of Denver… Pennyslvania, Brad was born with two purposes in mind:
1. play video games.
2. create audio.

After realizing that two purposes in one lifetime was probably too much he decided to just create audio for video games. Now he’s working with some of the people who created the games from his childhood. And constantly reminding them how much older than him they are…..

Chad Barb

Software Engineer

Since he got his first Commodore 64 as a young’n, Chad has been interested in programming games. After graduating from the University of Utah with a degree in Computer Science and spending a year at a startup, he escaped the Great State of Utah and went to California, working at Infinity Ward for about six years. He enjoys all sorts of coding, but tends to work mostly on the graphics side of things.

Chad Grenier

Game Designer

Chad was never born. He merely existed in the universe swirling around in eternity like the elements. The name we know him as: “Chad”, is no where near what his real name is. Names are for humans. The druids built Stonehenge. The ancient Egyptians built the pyramids. The Mayans erected monuments that inspired the imagination. All these wonders of the world were astral planetary markers built in preparation for His great arrival. Once the offices of Respawn Entertainment opened on May 1, 2010, galaxies and celestial beings aligned and summoned into this realm the Chad of Grenier.

Although now older and hopefully a little wiser, games have never quite lost that magical lustre to Chin, and he hopes that his work at Respawn will cast that same alluring enchantment on a whole new generation of gamers.

Cliff Childs

Artist

Cliff is a concept designer in the Los Angeles area. Originally from Utah, he is constantly inspired by nature. Vehicles, architecture, animals, and video games are also constant passions that inspire him on a daily basis. With spending so much time drawing and exploring creative video game worlds, it seemed that combining the two together in some form was a must. This eventually led him to be a part of an awesome culture filled with fierce talent known as Respawn. Yes, excellent choice!

Geoff Smith

Game Designer

He ran through the jungle dodging brush and his own booby traps. The humid night air smelled of blood and peat moss. A distant fire roared in the distance, illuminating the night sky into a bright orange. As prey, he would have to act quickly. Geoffrey readied his improvised banana leaf grenade bow and arrow. His naked body was covered in river mud, camouflaging the spectrum of the hunters vision. Then there was a fistfight with the creature and it ended up getting mortally wounded by a deadfall log. It got really pissed off and started a countdown for something, maybe a really huge bomb or whatever. Geoff ran away before the bomb went off and the credits rolled after that.

Gilles Cadet

Software Engineer

If you dig a vertical tunnel just below the feet of Gilles, you should reach the island where he was born. Gilles did not used this easy and direct route to get here! He first passed through France to trace some light rays, then he transited in Quebec to fill a bunch of pixels on mobile devices, and finally he arrived in California to burn GPU cycles. Gilles has no plans to move from here, but sometimes, he is dreaming of this tunnel that could bring him quickly to its island…

When he is not slaving over a boiling text editor, Jon enjoys melting glass, curing meat, experimenting with yeast and playing pretty much every game he can get his hands on.

Game Designer

At the young age of 5, I was telling anyone who would listen that I was going to make games when I grew up. I grew up, and now I make games. A lot of credit should go to my parents and siblings who bought me games and let me play them more than I probably should have. I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of good people in this industry and the trend continues here at Respawn! On a side note, more people should watch Steele Justice, it’s amazing!

Mackey McCandlish

Game Designer

Mackey McCandlish has made a career out of making it fun to shoot guns
in first person video games.

In high school Mackey’s first love was for gibbing space marines with
double barrel shotguns in DooM. His passion for deathmatch transferred
smoothly to creating his own DooM arenas. Between classes at the
Savannah College of Art & Design, Mackey honed his craft by creating
mods for his favorite games. His proudest mod achievements were Target
Quake and Blahbalicious. He also contributed to Rocket Arena and
Scourge of Armaggon.

In 2001, fresh out of school, Mackey joined forces with 2015, an elite
game development unit operating out of Tulsa Oklahoma. In January 2002
they shipped Medal of Honor: Allied Assault for the PC. Some of
Mackey’s contributions included a harrowing sniper crawl through a
rainy french town, the introductory ambush and rescue missions, and
the bunkers of DDay.

The Medal of Honor team went on to found Infinity Ward, which soon
moved to sunny Los Angeles. Over the next eight years IW reshaped the
shooter landscape with their ground breaking series, Call of Duty.
Mackey frequently collaborated with designer Steve Fukuda, breathing
life into Steve’s designs. Highlights included the “Burning Village”
demo level and “Stalingrad” mission of CoD1, the “Demolition” first
mission of CoD2, “The Bog” and “One Shot, One Kill” in CoD4, and
“Cliffhanger” and “Gulag” in MW2. Mackey considers his biggest
contribution to campaign shooters to be “friendly AI squad” gameplay,
and cinematic moments that feel seamlessly intertwined with gameplay.

In 2010, Mackey left IW to join Respawn Entertainment, where he
continues to make it fun to shoot guns in first person video games.

Game Designer

Mohammad was the first in his family to sail the seas. In his dhow with two lateen sails and a staysail, “Mo” circumnavigated the globe for one thousand and one nights in search of high adventure and delicious honey wine. Mo gained a solid crew of sailors and thieves volunteering their skills to seek treasure and fortune. By the time they reached Mourdioujène his crew had grown to quite the size. It was there that he met a beautiful woman dressed in tattered and sweat logged clothing but smelled of rusted pennies and ravioli. It was at that moment that he realized that he wanted to be a game designer at Respawn Entertainment.

Here at Respawn Entertainment, we believe that being outnumbered with a meager 4 to 1 in massive scale melee combat is a fair fight. The word “impossible” to us is ranked alongside toilet humor. We have built planes in mid-air, only to fully complete building them before they land. Seriously, try to figure out that last sentence. For us, six trips around the sun is an early morning warm up run. Our robots run at full speed, which is 65mph. Our outerworld Colonies are full of enigmatic, fantastical space ninjas that can fire a fully automatic 38 round magazine with a 1 inch grouping at 50 meters. They do this all while running a 4 minute mile, inverted, on a wall. We can swim, bike, and ultra run with the best of them. We fight for freedom and abolish tyranny. So the next time you find yourself at a wall, or staring at a blank screen with nothing to do, or faced with hordes of thousands of cybernetic barbarians wearing goat armor, ask yourself, “What the hell is the meaning to this bio and why did I read it?” You are welcome.

I crashed a game during a focus group and was brought in the next day for a job as a QA tester. I worked my way up through the ranks over the years from Temp QA to Director of QA. I’ve worked on about 35 titles ranging from Gameboy Advanced to Facebook and Mobile titles. I enjoy games but don’t play as much as I would like, mostly because I’m a big movie buff. I can get through most conversations just by quoting movie lines. I was probably a cat in a former life just judging by how much I sleep and eat (and that I have a tendency to “meow” whenever someone says my name).
