My name is Derek Daniels. I was born in Indianapolis, IN and was a proud Hoosier for the first 25 years of my life. From there I moved to Los Angeles, CA to chase my dream of making videogames. My first job was at Paradox where I worked on X-Men: Next Dimension, Backyard Wrestling 1 & 2, and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks.
After that I moved to Activision to work in the Central Studios. I've been fortunate enough to have been involved in a lot of games Activision publishes but here lately I've been spending a lot of time with Skylanders.
