Stephen E. Dinehart IV
Full-spectrum creative, with decades in product development. Founder of The Colorverse. USC Cinema grad.
I met Warren years ago at MIT's Education Arcade as a student at USC, he's everything you want in a mentor. He's ripe with knowledge, integr ... ity and skills. If it where not for his works and encouragement I might not be here today. I'd just about kill to have him as an advisor for The Colorverse. Though, I'd probably just need to ask.
Steve Peterson
Senior Editor, The Gamer Network and West Coast Editor, GamesIndustry International. University of California, Santa Barbara grad.
He has vast experience with games and game companies, from small startups to large corporations. As well as exceptional game design skills. ... He is an excellent advisor.

Warren is one of the most loved and respected people in the industry. I've been lucky enough to known him for of 30 years. Warren helped put ... Looking Glass, Edios and Disney in the forefront of development of software titles. When I think of pionees and leaders in the computer industry, Warren is on that panel.

E. Daniel Arey
They're my friends  •  Writer, Blizzard Entertainment and Creative Director, VisionArey Entertainment.
His extensive experience working in a variety of companies as well as on his own as a game design consultant makes him an excellent candidat ... e for advisory roles, for both early stage game developers as well as more established ones. Should he choose to start his own studio, I have no doubt he would have a solid chance of success with appropriate financial and business support.
