Friday Spotlight > Console Game / K-12 veterans join Enspire Studios

Enspire Studios is pleased to announce two exciting additions to our team!

Matt Rhoades comes to Enspire Studios from the world of AAA video game development, having designed for consoles like the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Most recently, he was Lead Quest Designer on Epic Mickey 2 for the Walt Disney Company. Prior to Disney, he worked in Senior and Lead roles on a number of high profile super hero games, including DC Universe Online for Sony Online Entertainment, The Incredible Hulk movie game for Sega, and three Spider-Man games based on the Sam Raimi films for Activision. He has promised to use his extensive knowledge of games and game design only for good, and not, as some malicious rumors have suggested, for world domination.

Robin Brandenburg has an extensive teaching and educational publishing background spanning more than 20 years. Most recently she was Director of Momentum and Innovation for Six Red Marbles, unearthing important research to help drive product development efforts including development of the flagship gamification products Juba, Waza, and Cabanga. Previously she was Director of Digital Learning for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt helping design, develop, and manage eLearning products across the digital spectrum for their supplemental imprints. She has worked with Pearson Learning Solutions, Bill Smith Group, FableVision, and others. As a statewide trainer for the Florida Department of Education Brandenburg supported teachers wanting to integrate technology into their curriculum. An award winning classroom teacher Brandenburg has taught in the elementary classroom, graduate courses on instructional design, and led many trainings and presentations on a wide range of topics.
