Andrew Marsh
We worked together  •  Founder and CEO, Fifth Column Games. Previously Lead Engineer, Lead Designer, CrowdStar. Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad.
My company created several IP work for hire games for Kris while she was head of games at A+E Networks. She was a mix of my boss, producer, ... client, advisor, and friend. I worked with here for about 3 years. Kris is a unique mix of easy to work with, professional, and very good at her job. She knows the entertainment industry inside and out and is smart and creative, yet still knows how to listen, collaborate, and delegate without ego. She's a rare one and I can't recommend her enough as an advisor.
