My name is Chip Pedersen. I have been in the Tech Industry for 27+ years. 21 of those years making video games. I went to college for art, but ended up on the Production side, then on to running studios. The reason I got my first job in the game industry is because I could talk to both artists and engineers. Santa brought me an iPad Pro last year and I got back into creating art. I have my own indie game studio where I have been doing the art and coding on small mobile games. www.frostbitstudio.com The iPad pro and AstroPad has made it easier to do my work digitally wherever I am, or the mode strikes me. I have moved a lot for work. All 3 of my sons were born in different states. Work has allowed me to travel the world and meet a lot of incredible people who have taught me many things. I’m glad to be back in Minnesota where I was born and near family.
