The great Dave Prout stops by to chat with Michele about what it's really like to have a lot of people's dream job. Not only has he had a hand in some major game titles from the last SEVERAL DECADES, he's an entrepreneur who has built several businesses from the ground up.
Dave has the unconventional career path that began at Dreamworks in the late 90s and led to creating and working on games like Medal of Honor, Halo, and Call of Duty. He's made a name for himself as an incredible team leader and a defining voice in the industry, and Dave is also, we all agree, the definition of a swell guy.
If you're interested in the gaming industry, lessons in balancing technical and creative work, and what it means to build thought leadership into your team, this is the episode for you. What stands out to us about Dave's career is not the flashy titles, it's the building and developing of top talent and the care he puts into the people he works with.
Come for the compelling backstory, stay for the gaming nerdery and shop talk!
