My name is Gerald Milton; I am a Video Game Producer. I am trained in Agile Development Methodologies, Scrum, and traditional Project Management.

My professional background is in heavy industry - manufacturing, agricultural irrigation, and mill management. I transitioned from these very traditional and established industries because I am extremely passionate about video games. 

I have worked on teams and in organizations of various sizes. I have experience managing publishing requirements, producing teams, facilitating communication between departments, managing stakeholder expectations, and bringing projects to market.

I have played a role in several successful and exciting projects in the video game industry.

  • Designer on a small-scale mobile game created with a team of four developers

  • Producer on a multiplayer split-screen couch racing game made by a team of 56 developers

  • Managing volunteers for a  commercial eSports and gaming convention/expo that had thousands of attendees

  • Lead producer on a very successful first-person platforming game developed by a 13 member team
