Meet The Team
Stephen B. Lewis, CEO and Creative Director
With over 19 years in the game industry Stephen has been a creative force behind many titles across a variety of platforms. At SEGA he worked on AlienFront: Online, the first coin-op (and later Dreamcast) game with networked voice chat. At Linden Lab he was the sole technical artist who helped design and implement the customizable avatar system for the groundbreaking MMO Second Life. He conceived, co-designed, and art directed the hit casual game series Chocolatier published by Playfirst. As Creative Officer of Big Splash Games Stephen created nearly all the art and animation for Love Ahoy, a downloadable casual game. A jack-of-all-trades of art production and game design, Stephen recently made the giant leap to programming for the hit app The Bad Girl's Journal and the upcoming action/arcade title Bounce Party, both for iOS/Android.
Stephen has a BA in film production from the University of Southern California.
Barbara Pollak, Co-Founder and Design Director

As a freelance editorial illustrator her work has graced the pages of The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Seventeen, Time for Kids, and many other publications. Her work spans a broad range from game art and illustration for the children and teen markets to music posters for the legendary Fillmore Theater in San Francisco.

Stephanie Trelogan, Writer
Stephanie studied biology in college and hibernation in graduate school, but she never lost sight of her first love: writing and storytelling. She writes about all manner of subjects for people of all ages, although now that she has kids she rather prefers writing for them. Stephanie is the author of Mask Parade Forest Animals, a novelty board book for the two- to five-year-old crowd.
Stephanie has a BS in biology from the University of Puget Sound, and an MS in Molecular Biology from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
