  • Arone

    Associate Quality Developer

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    I’ll always have a soft spot for Chrono Trigger. That was the gateway game that I just couldn’t put down in elementary school, and I still fire it up every now and then for nostalgia.

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    Before I started working with Narrative teams at BioWare they didn’t have any QA resources specifically allocated to them. Since I started offering support and training other QA members in Narrative Analysis, I’ have heard how valuable the designers find our input on each project. That’s a special fuzzy feeling I like.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    The best thing about BioWare is that absolutely everyone is a nerd—huge nerds. The best thing about nerds is that their passion seeps into every aspect of daily life in the office.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    Given the chance, I’d love to expand our Narrative Analysis services EA-wide. Even if it’s just to help train other Analysts so they avoid some of the roadblocks we encountered when we were starting out.

    Favorite Bar

    There’s a bar called The Buckingham on Whyte that does awesome vegan “chicken” wings.

    Love About the City

    There’s a reason we’re called the Festival City. If you’re a nerd about something (and I hope you are), I can almost guarantee that you will find a huge event dedicated to that exact thing happening in Edmonton.

  • Jennifer

    QA Team Lead

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    Earthbound on the Super Nintendo. It was one of the first RPGs I played as a kid, and it really struck a chord with me. I replay it every couple of years.

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    Growing to understand that you have to chase your own happiness. It’s very important to find ways to be satisfied in work and play, and sometimes that requires taking a scary jump into the unknown.
    I’ve managed to achieve a good understanding of this, but it will always be a work in progress.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    Being a part of the talented and passionate team that makes up our BioWare family! It’s an honor to be able to contribute to the amazing games we make. Also, the coffee is pretty awesome.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    I would likely be doing something related to nutrition and well-being. I’m a believer in the healing powers of a really good sandwich. I also like making music, but I probably shouldn’t quit my day job.


    My Edmonton

    Favorite Bar

    I don’t get out to bars often, but I worked at the Starlite Room when I was younger and really enjoyed it. Live music and cold beer is a good mix. There are also a few arcade-style pubs around town that are fun to visit.

    Love About the City

    All of the awesome festivals that happen here year-round—especially the ones dealing with food and music.

    Best Winter Tip

    Wear lots of layers and get a 4x4 vehicle—it’s icy here!

  • Darrin

    Senior Software Engineer

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    Tomb Raider (2013)

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    Finding a career that I enjoy and that challenges me daily. Doing something you enjoy is the key to success.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    The people. Even though we all have individual roles to play, we do it as a team. Everyone's feedback is valued, and every person at BioWare has an open-door policy.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    Computer Graphics R&D group—either at a university, hardware manufacturer, or film company. Learning new algorithms and technology is what keeps me going.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    Professionally, as long as we're still making great games that our customers love, then I'm happy. For my own small part, I'd like to continue growing BioWare's rendering expertise and help us become industry leaders for cinematic storytelling.
    And personally, I want to learn Spanish, reaching the B2 level of proficiency using the CEFR standard. Then I will reward myself with a trip to South America.

    Best Summer Tip

    Barton Springs Pool is the go-to answer for most people, but for something a little different, try exploring one of the nearby caves. Being underground means the temperatures stay nice and cool year-round, and you might even learn something along the way.

  • Rick

    Lead Technical Designer

    Who is your favorite fictional character and why?
    Fiddler from Tales of the Malazan Fallen by Steven Erikson. It’s my favorite universe, and this character is stuck in a war doing his job. He’s going through extreme situations while still maintaining his character all the way through. If you have not read this series, do it now and settle in for a long journey.

    What question do you commonly get asked about your job at BioWare?
    Is it hard? Like any job, you get what you put in. I’ve given almost 20 years to making games and at this point I can simply say I love creating worlds and experiences for others to enjoy.
    The work itself is grueling at times and self-indulgent at others. I get to work on the games I would otherwise be playing on my own, and this helps me get through those moments of 16-hour days, crusty stress levels, and order-in food.
    We do this because we want to make the best product, and you need to find a base to stand on to stay sane.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    Either a teacher or a chef. I’ve had the privilege of teaching classes for 15 years across several disciplines. Talking through problems and helping people see things they didn’t know before is one of the most rewarding feelings I have experienced.
    I also routinely try to bring a little flare in the kitchen at home to my family. I enjoy the challenge of taking different ingredients and blending them together into something new.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    At this point in my career it isn’t enough to just make the next game—I’m looking for new and better ways for developers to deliver more content to players faster. My hope is that in three years I have made my impact internally at BioWare and hopefully beyond for better tools and systems.


    My Edmonton

    Favorite Place

    Jasper. Ok it isn’t Edmonton, but being this close to the mountains means I get out there as often as possible to take in the air, the scenery, and the relaxing downtime.

    Best Culture Spot

    The Edmonton Heritage festival. Every August long weekend, 60-80 different cultures gather to hold a celebration of cultural diversity through crafts, traditions, and ultimately, food! My family has gone pretty much every year, and it’s a great chance to learn about everything this city should offer for different backgrounds and cultures.

    Best Winter Tip

    Artificial sun lamps. The winter days are short (offset by terrific long summer days) and we found it useful to get lights in our house that simulate a sunrise early in the morning.

  • Ben

    Producer II

    What question do you commonly get asked about your job at BioWare?
    “Do you just play video games all day at work?” (Spoiler: the answer is no.)

    How did you come to join BioWare?
    My goal has always been to make the greatest video games in the world. I grew up in Australia where there weren’t many opportunities to work on AAA games. One day I quit my job, sold all my possessions, and moved halfway around the world with the hope of working for BioWare.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    I would do everything in my power to work in the games industry.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    Make the greatest video game in the world.

    Director of Audio

    Who is your favorite fictional character and why?
    Batman, because he has a strong moral code and is willing to do whatever it takes to fight evil. (Also, he has a sweet car.)

    What question do you commonly get asked about your job at BioWare?
    “Do you get paid to play video games?”

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    Probably music, djing, and producing.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    To be happy. I think goals should revolve around an overall mental state and career/life goals should feed into that.

  • Alexandra

    Software Engineer

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    Portal. I loved how it effectively rewired your brain into a new paradigm.

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    My master’s degree in computer science. I had the opportunity to work with great minds in the field of programming languages and compilers. Second to that, working at BioWare has always offered great challenges and accomplishments.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    Being surrounded by the best in the industry. The team is passionate, creative, and hard-working. It has always been a pleasure to work with these amazing people.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    I have a continuous goal of helping BioWare deliver great games to the best of my ability. As I’m relatively new to the industry, my current goal is to gather experience in different aspects of game development and possibly work as an Engine or Gameplay Programmer in the future.

    Best Summer Tip

  • Karin

    Lead Editor

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    That’s like making me pick my favorite child! I have fave games for different reasons: Neverwinter Nights as my “dating my now-husband” memory; Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare being the first game I got to REALLY play multiplayer with my kids; Overwatch as a current source of social fun with my friends...
    I’m backing out of committing to one single game, though.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    The people, on both sides of the game. I’m so honored to work with the creative, good-hearted people I do, and interact with the creative, good-hearted people who play what we make. I’ve learned so much from all of them. Still am.

    What is your most treasured possession?
    My singing voice makes me who I am, and I’ve trained and taken voice classes throughout my life, which makes it feel more like a possession. Any chance to make music with or for someone is a gift (corny, but true!) and I’d be lost if I couldn’t do it.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    Another type of editing, or music education in some form.


    My Edmonton

    Favorite Cafe/Bakery

    I love the Bogani Café, local to my neighborhood. Fantastic chai, delicious soups and pastries, and a huge cozy seating area for reading or catching up with friends.

    Favorite Restaurant

    Loma House, an AMAZING family-owned Asian vegetarian restaurant in south Edmonton.

    Best Winter Tip

    If you must park your car outside after it’s been in a garage, slightly cracking the windows will equalize the temperature and keep the inside of your windows from icing over. (And if you forget, a credit card makes a great emergency ice scraper.)

  • Keith

    Lead World Designer

    All time favorite game:
    Uncharted 4. It’s an epic tour-de-force of action and storytelling, and a fitting end for Nathan Drake.

    Best thing about Bioware:
    Working with talented designers and artists from all over the world. I'm amazed by the passion of the people here, and even after 15 years I still feel like I’m constantly learning from them.

    Perfect day in my life:
    After sleeping in (which is a near impossibility with two toddlers at home), heading out for brunch at Little Brick and a walk in the river valley. Then home for a nap, followed by an afternoon of playing board games (Season 2 of Pandemic Legacy, anyone?), and then out for a gig at night after the kids are down.

    Greatest achievement:
    Helping to ship some of the best games in the industry, while having such an amazing family to go home to after work.

    Most Treasured Possession:
    Possibly my ticket stub collection from all the events I've been to going back to the late 80s. I've got a nice display that a friend put together that is fun to look at and brings back some great memories—and there's always room to add more.


    My Edmonton

    Love About the City

    I love that we have access to so much culture, arts, music, and events here and yet still feel like a small town. I feel like I'm never more than two degrees of separation from anyone in town, from the mayor to the local Taiko drumming troop. This makes it so easy to get involved in pretty much anything that interests you.

    Favorite Restaurant

    There are so many to choose from, but I'll go with Corso 32. It’s an amazing place for Italian food in downtown Edmonton.

    Best Culture Spot

    The Mercury Room—a hole in the wall joint with great live music.

  • Alec

    Lead Senior Software Developer

    Who is your favorite fictional character and why?
    Spider-Man. I was a fan as a kid and he’s stuck around as my all-time #1 across mediums (Big-eyes, McFarlane style please!)

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    Fallout

    What question do you commonly get asked about your job at BioWare?
    Do I still enjoy playing the games I work on, having already seen most of the content during development? (Answer: Absolutely!)

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    The people. It’s a constant source of motivation to be around so many passionate individuals and masters of their craft every day.

    If you could design the perfect day in your life, what would it look like?
    Family and friends. Board games. Beer. Tacos.

  • Danny

    Senior Designer

    How did you come to join BioWare?
    I was attending film school at the University of Texas back in 2009, and one day while studying in the library I saw a post to our department that BioWare was looking for potential designers to help build Star Wars: The Old Republic. At that point, I had already been itching to work in the games industry, and considering my love for Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars in general, applying for the position was a no-brainer.

    What is your most treasured possession?
    As materialistic as it sounds, my most treasured possession is my smartphone (currently a Samsung Galaxy S7). As anyone who knows me can attest, I take a ton of photos of just about everything, all on my phone. It's also there when I need it for communication, gaming, videos, news, VR, maps, etc. I'd be lost without it—literally and figuratively.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    If I weren't in the games industry I'd still like to work with visual effects & compositing for TV and film. Is that answer a cop-out? I know these two industries are getting more and more similar these days. So basically if I wasn't working on sci-fi video games I'd want to work instead on sci-fi movies or TV shows.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    Over the next three years I hope to expand upon my knowledge of Frostbite and other game engines to include skills outside of design, such as art and audio. Knowing the tools and workflows associated with these adjacent disciplines should help me better understand and collaborate with other departments in addition to becoming a more well-rounded developer.


    My Austin

    Favorite Cafe/Bakery

    For my favorite local bakery I'd have to go with Blue Baker over in the Arboretum. There's always a great assortment of breads, cookies, bagels, sandwiches, etc. On top of that, the baking station is separated from the seating area by a giant window, so you can watch the pastries as they're being made.

    Love About the City

    One thing I love about Austin is the amount of innovation that happens here across all forms of media and entertainment. It's a city filled with smart, fun, creative people, and I'm honored to have had the opportunity to work alongside so many of them.

    Favorite Restaurant

    Apart from the big chain restaurants (which I love because I'm a boring person), I'd say one of my favorite Austin eateries is the Umi Sushi Bar down south. If you're a sushi fan and ever find yourself there, I'd strongly suggest trying the Longhorn Roll!

  • Alexandra

    Quality Analyst

    Favorite fictional character:
    The new Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan. I like her because she’s a superhero, but as a teenage girl she still has a lot of relatable struggles with her identity, values, who she loves, and who she trusts. I think she’s a great role model for anyone—especially young people.

    Question about your job at BioWare:
    “Can you tell me all about the newest unreleased game?” The answer is always, “No.”

    How did I come to join BioWare:
    I went to the U of A and was very into computer science and video games, so I was always checking for job postings at BioWare. I applied after I graduated and here I am!

    What I would do if I wasn’t in the games industry:
    I sing in a lot of choirs in my spare time and thought about pursuing voice in college. Maybe I’d go back and become an opera singer.


    My Edmonton

    Favorite Place

    Churchill square. I love it in the summer when there are tons of festivals and performances going on. There’s always something new to see.

    Best Culture Spot

    I really enjoy the Heritage Festival during the August long weekend. I always get great food, and it’s awesome to see how diverse Edmonton is as a city.

  • Preston

    Senior Creative Director

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    It is a tie actually. Diablo III and Skyrim are both games I admire as a player and a designer. They are incredibly fun but also offer many lessons for what best in class looks like.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    I have loved RPGs my entire life. Being able to come in week after week and work on this type of game is exciting. As a Creative Director I am doing the work I have always dreamed of doing and getting paid for it.

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    Professionally, I would say standing up our new IP. I learned a lot helping to build the Mass Effect franchise and I hope I am bringing all of that learning forward to build something fun and interesting.

    What is your most treasured possession?
    When I held my last stand-up for the Mass Effect franchise as its Lead Designer my staff gave me a signed card. I would save that in a fire before any award or plaque.

    Best Culture Spot

    Overall I really love the restaurant scene in Edmonton. For a mid-size city, it has a lot of great places to eat. Last year 9 of the top 100 restaurants in Canada were in Edmonton.

    Love About the City

    I love Edmonton’s river valley. It’s the largest urban park in Canada with more than 160 km of trails.

  • Allan

    Associate Software Developer in Test

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    Planescape: Torment.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    I love the wide range of challenges that come up during a project. I get the chance to work on a lot of different things, which keeps my work fresh and exciting.

    If you could design the perfect day, what would it look like?
    It would be tough to fit everything into one day, but it would involve travelling through Europe or Japan with my fiancée and taking in the cultural and historical hotspots of the areas.

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    Shipping Dragon Age: Inquisition. This project was so immense in scope and really solidified the respect I had for my colleagues. It’s the only game I’ve worked on that I still played after release because I just loved what we were trying to accomplish.


    My Edmonton

    Love About the City

    Our river valley is amazingly beautiful. I love going for bike rides or runs during the summer on the trails. It winds through most of the city, so I can mix things up by checking out different areas all the time.

    Best Culture Spot

    Whyte Avenue during an event, such as Pride Parade or the Fringe Festival. There’s lots of stuff to see and do that I’m only just now becoming aware of.

  • Rachel

    Game Designer

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    I have a hard time with absolutes like “favorite” or “most.” Building a planet in Mass Effect: Andromeda is definitely high on that list. But life is full of unexpected things, and I look forward to seeing what else I can achieve that I haven’t even dreamt of yet.

    How did you come to join BioWare?
    I grew up playing BioWare games in high school. I must have replayed Mass Effect a dozen times.
    When I decided to pursue a career in games, I knew I was interested in world-building and creating the kind of rich, narratively complex experiences only BioWare could deliver (which is a pretty way of saying is I was a huge fangirl, and desperately wanted to work at this studio).
    I got my bachelor’s degree, and then worked three jobs while I put together a portfolio to apply to grad school. When I was finishing up my master’s, the school told us BioWare was going to interview a handful of students, and I was lucky enough to be one of them. I somehow composed myself enough to deliver coherent answers and present my portfolio, and the rest is history.

    What is your most treasured possession?
    At a signing event, Neil Gaiman once drew googly eyes on my copy of Sandman vol 2 and told me I looked cool as a cucumber. It may not be my most treasured possession of all time, but it’s up there.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    Run away and join the circus, probably.


    My Austin

    Favorite Cafe/Bakery

    I think our entire office has a deep love affair with Tiny Pies. Though I once had some kind of lemon tart thing at Bribery Bakery that was so beautiful it almost brought me to tears. True story.

    Love About the City

    Bats, tacos, breweries, and all the weirdness in between.

    Favorite Restaurant

    I’m not sure I could pick just one, but there’s this great Indo-Chinese place called Chicken Lollypop that’s tucked away in the back of a corner store. People talk about “hole in the wall,” but you’re literally ordering through a window on the shop’s back wall. It’s absolutely delicious, and the owner is so friendly. Definitely one of the most “Austin” places I could think to take someone (if for no other reason than to watch the confused look on their face walking into a convenience store for dinner).

  • Graham

    Senior Level Designer

    Who is your favorite fictional character and why?
    John Furie Zacharias (aka Gentle) from Imajica by Clive Barker. It was one of the first worlds I fell in love with, and John’s transformation as he explored seemingly foreign realms while coming to terms with his past and his role in the world was amazing. Now I need to read it again, thanks.

    How did you come to join BioWare?
    I had been at a smaller company in Calgary working on various projects for the GameBoy Advance and Nintendo DS. Working with smaller teams gave me the opportunity to touch nearly every aspect of development and allowed for tons of self-learning.
    BioWare was building a team to work on Sonic Chronicles, and I took a chance and applied, hoping my experiences in handheld games would pay off. Great Success!

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    I have literally no idea. Throughout high school I had no clue what I wanted to do, but I ate, slept, and breathed video games. It wasn’t until I was out of school and still working in fast food restaurants that I started looking for paths into the industry. I took a chance on a multimedia course, worked my butt off to get an interview, and haven’t let off the gas since.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    I’d like to start mentoring a bit more in the future. Lessons I learned early in my career due to hardware restrictions and smaller team sizes have afforded me unique perspectives I can share.
    I’ve also learned a great deal from my own mentors over the years, and I’d love to pay it forward.


    My Edmonton

    Favorite Place

    Not in Edmonton, but nearby. My family has a gorgeous retreat where our trailer is located on Lac Ste. Anne. We pretty much live out there on weekends during the summer. There’s fishing, quad trails, boating, and last summer we even found our own little private beach if you follow the river… I’ve said too much.

    Best Culture Spot

    Fort Edmonton Park.

    Best Winter Tip

    Layers—it’s all about layers. That and remote car starters.

  • Mike

    Creative Director

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    I’ve had a lot of people take a moment to tell me how much our games have meant to them. For some, they’re a distraction from grief or illness. For others, they’re a validating tale of heroism when things are going poorly. Knowing that I’ve been part of a team that made people happy or helped them be healthy is something I’m very proud of.

    How did you come to join BioWare?
    I had been reviewing games from 2000-2003, and got to ride the first dot-com bubble burst (as it was called back when the internet was totally a fad that would never catch on). That experience set me up to meet deadlines, and my sample module done in Neverwinter Nights caught some eyes. Together, it was enough to land me a position as a junior writer on Jade Empire. I cannot thank Ray, Greg, and Kevin Martens (my lead designer at the time) enough for taking the chance on me.

    What is your most treasured possession?
    My grandfather was in the Canadian military, and after he passed away, my mother had his medals, parts of his uniform, and some pictures put together in a commemorative display. When I moved to Edmonton she sent it with me, and it’s hung on my wall ever since as a reminder of how proud I am to be Canadian.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    I’ve recently been dabbling with streaming games, so I imagine I’d give “going pro” a try to see if I could run with it. If I walked away from gaming entirely? I honestly have no idea. I’m not sure what a Mike Laidlaw who isn’t at least a little obsessed with games looks like.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    This past year I went on a “personal renovation” kick and managed to lose 75 lbs. The next logical step is getting in better shape, which I guess means making “trips to the gym” a habit.


    My Edmonton

    Best City Tip

    Edmonton has a code that makes all the sense in the world when you figure it out. If an address is 10187 90th St, you know immediately that the place you’re looking for is just North of 101st Ave’s crossing with 90th st. The “101” part of the address gives you the other coordinate. This doesn’t work everywhere, as some streets have specific names, but once you know the trick you can picture the location of any address you hear fairly easily. Having grown up in Ontario where streets all tend to have names, this impressed me to no end.

  • Rachel

    Software Engineer

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    It’s a tie between Super Metroid and Final Fantasy 6.
    Super Metroid is the most well-constructed game I’ve ever seen. It’s fun from start to finish, the controls feel natural, and there’s a huge world to explore with callbacks to the original while still making everything bigger and new.
    Final Fantasy 6 has such a beautiful story, music, cast, and world. There are so many side stories to discover for each character, so much background to discover, and I still have feelings about it.

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    Passing my level 1 belt test in Krav Maga. The test took 10 hours and was the most physically demanding thing I’ve ever done.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    The people are amazing. This is such a wonderful collection of amazing professionals who are motivated and passionate about building the best games they can together.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    I’d probably be programming at a far more boring job.

    Best Summer Tip

    Acclimate to the heat. When it starts, don’t hide from it. You’ll do much better in the summer if you go outside and hike when it’s in the 80s and 90s rather than trying to hide in the AC.

  • Gracie

    Technical Art Director

    Who is your favorite fictional character and why?
    I’m quite the foodie and always have a little rumbly in my tumbly, so I often relate to Winnie the Pooh. I also admire his simplistic view of things—a lot of times I overcomplicate things and he is a good reminder to scale back and enjoy life as it comes.
    He may be a silly bear, but he’s pretty wise, too!

    What question do you commonly get asked about your job at BioWare?
    I typically get asked what the work environment is like. Most people think we get to play video games all day (I wish!), but for me, it’s a constant stream of challenging technical puzzles. Finding solutions makes it easier for our artists and animators to get content into the game.
    I work with an extremely talented and fun international team, and there are many people I talk to frequently but have never met in person (or only met once).
    We work hard, we play hard, but most importantly, we love what we do. (And bonus: I totally love breakfast taco Fridays at BioWare Austin. It’s the best!)

    How did you come to join BioWare?
    I’ve been with the EA family for quite some time. I started my career as an intern and worked on EA Sports titles (Tiger Woods PGA Tour, NBA Live, Madden NFL) for a number of years in Orlando, Florida.
    As a Texan born and raised, the appeal of being closer to home, plus the opportunity to be a part of BioWare’s rich tradition of compelling gameplay experiences and storytelling, made BioWare a natural choice. As luck would have it, Madden NFL and Star Wars: The Old Republic had some shared technology at the time that I was very familiar with, and (along with some amazing support from my EA network) I was able to get my foot in the door. The rest is history!

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    I’d like to be comfortable conversationally in Spanish, and maybe pick up a little bit of French. Both of my parents are fluent Spanish speakers, and I can understand it reasonably well already, so it’s just practice, practice, practice (I mean…”practicar, practicar, practicar”).


    My Austin

    Favorite Place

    I love to get outdoors and run, and when I can make it downtown, my favorite place to go is the trail on Lady Bird Lake. I like to listen to my feet hit the gravel, hear the birds chirp, and see people biking and canoeing. It’s so peaceful.

    Best Culture Spot

    The Hope Outdoor Gallery is an amazing place: one big canvas that is constantly being changed by graffiti artists. It’s colorful, fun to explore, and great for pictures!

    Best Summer Tip

    Just a short drive south of Austin is the town of Gruene, Texas (pronounced “Green”). It’s a quaint little town with great restaurants, live music, and the oldest dance hall in Texas. And best of all: plenty of places to raft/tube the Guadalupe River on a hot summer day. Nothing better than a lazy day floating the river. You can even bring a cooler along with you!

  • Angela

    QA Manager

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    That’s a hard question. Wizardry 5 was the first non-edutainment game I played, and it got me hooked on RPGs. Doom changed my young life with deathmatch, and the mod tools helped me realize people like me could make games.
    But I’d have to go with Baldur’s Gate 2 for merging my love of RPG mechanics with deep stories and fascinating characters. There are few things I love more than losing myself in a great story.

    What do you consider your greatest achievement?
    The birth of my daughter. My tiny, sarcastic genius delights and cracks me up.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    The level of honesty and transparency across the team. I’ve never had the gift of such clear and open communication in the industry before. Feedback is both respectfully given and received in a healthy way. You can see the impact of this honesty in the work that we do.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    I’d probably be running a secondhand bookstore alongside my cat, recommending stories people can lose themselves in.


    My Austin

    Favorite Bar

    Chocolate!

    Favorite Place

    Lucy’s Fried Chicken, for a basket of fried goodness and a great atmosphere.

    Best City Tip

    There’s no reason to eat at a chain restaurant when there’s so much local goodness to explore.

  • Harold

    Technical Director

    Who is your favorite fictional character and why?
    Roy Neary from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. He’s an ordinary guy who is seized with a compulsion to create and explore for reasons that he can’t understand himself. For me, he’s the archetype of geeking out and losing yourself in your passion, and I can really relate to that. Plus he gets to go up in the spaceship.

    What question do you commonly get asked about your job at BioWare?
    “So, do you basically sit around and play games all day?” Yup. I’m a kid in a candy shop.

    How did you come to join BioWare?
    I had been working at EA Vancouver on sports titles for seven years, and was ready for a new challenge. My manager found a posting for a technical director at BioWare Montréal, and I interviewed for it without knowing what it was for.
    It wasn’t until I was back home that I realized what an amazing opportunity it was, and how badly I wanted it.

    If you were not in the games industry, what would you do?
    I would be off somewhere else, trying to convince my friends to do some kind of huge unrealistic project, and having a lot of fun doing it—just like I do at BioWare.

    What is a goal you set for yourself in three years?
    My goal is to keep finding new and interesting problems to solve, and to go wherever that takes me.


    My Austin

    Favorite Place

    Barton Creek Greenbelt. Nature-filled trail in the middle of town, and plenty of water to help you cool down. (Hey, that rhymes!)

    Favorite Restaurant

    Hoover’s is my go-to place when I want good meal without the fuss. Straight-up, unassuming comfort food.

    Best Culture Spot

    Alamo Drafthouse. They don’t just show movies, they love movies, and it’s infectious.

  • Janice

    Director of Product Development

    What is your all-time favorite game?
    I still think back to one of the first games to really sink its hooks into me back in 1995: Crusader: No Remorse. It was a mission-based game that combined stealth with creative weaponry and an easy-to-use interface, and the result was pure, addictive fun.
    Perhaps it’s just because it was one of the first games I really got into, but it’s the yardstick by which all other games have been measured.

    What is the best thing about working at BioWare?
    I love the people I get to work with here at BioWare. We have an eclectic mix of people from around the globe, all coming together to do something they are passionate about. It makes such a huge difference in your day-to-day work when the people you spend most your time with are engaged and excited about what they are doing.

    What is your most treasured possession?
    Back in the 1940s, my grandmother ordered some lily bulbs from a mail order greenhouse in Ontario. At the time, she had an amazing garden down in a historic part of the city, covering most of three large city lots. She ended up giving some of those lily bulbs to my mom for her garden, and my mom has now shared them with me and my sister.
    Mine grow in my front yard and bloom for a week or two in late spring. The little yellow flowers are far too modest to compete with the lilies being sold today, but I love sitting out there on a warm, sunny day, looking at these simple but strong little flowers that have weathered the last seven decades across three generations of family.
    I’m sure there’s a life lesson in there somewhere.


    My Edmonton

    Favorite Restaurant

    One of my favorite restaurants in the city is the High Level Diner near the University, particularly on Thursday nights when their special is a Ukrainian feast. You get some of the best borscht around, along with local ham sausage, and homemade perogies and cabbage rolls. Add in their stellar homemade iced tea and some bread pudding with bourbon caramel sauce and you’ll be full for days. This area was initially settled by a lot of Ukrainian immigrants, so I feel like this meal is a bit of a nod to local history, in addition to being tasty.

    Best City Tip

    Every few years, my husband and I take a stay-cation and try to do things in our own city that we’ve never done before. One year our goal was to visit all of the larger city parks, and in a two-week span we barely scratched the surface. There are so many parks and trails, and so many activities throughout town, that you can easily stay busy for weeks with a minimum of planning. Play Frisbee Golf in Goldbar Park, ride a paddle boat in Hawrelak Park, learn how to ride a Segway through a handful of river valley parks, take the dog to one of the many off-leash parks, or if you’re particularly adventurous, you can paddle a canoe from the neighboring town of Devon to Emily Murphy Park. We usually have great weather in the summer, so vacationing at home saves some money and you can still sleep in your own bed at night.
