James As A Service

    Hi! I'm
James Kotzian
(the one on the right), and I'm a game designer from Michigan with a background in computer science. Right now I live in Champaign, Illinois designing missions for Volition's new Saints Row game. I moonlight as an indie developer with the goal of creating novel designs that have underlying social messages. Besides making games, I enjoy playing ukulele, traveling, and getting up to general shenanigans.
