Brendan Vanous

Head of Developer Success, Advanced Technology Group and PlayFab

Brendan fled the world of embedded systems to join the venerable Sierra On-Line as a game developer in the mid-90s, and after 20 years in the industry he’s still loving it.

He is extremely passionate about helping developers bring their games to life using Microsoft’s services, having spent the last 12 years helping literally thousands of titles get to market, between his time in the Advanced Technology Group and PlayFab.

In addition to playing video games, Brendan does kendo, and is currently 3 dan. He has also done voice-over and FMV acting for several video games including multiple characters in Shivers II: Harvest of Souls.
