THE TEAM

Fire Giant Entertainment is comprised of four industry veterans who after many years of collaboration and leadership on larger teams decided they missed the hands-on satisfaction and empowerment of working independently on their own designs and IP. 


Our team is passionate and committed to delivering high quality experiences to our audience with the understanding that our success is solely dependent upon their appreciation for our craft.
