DEREK CORNISHTECHNICAL DIRECTOR
From the first time he ever held a handed-down, worn-out comic book in his hands to his ever-growing collection of pop-up masterpieces and automata, Derek has always had a deep passion for visually rich and interactive storytelling. Derek is an industry veteran who brings years of low-level experience at virtually every stage of game development with him. From his time as a graphics driver engineer, to writing GPU performance analysis and debugging applications, to his years at Epic Games, developing the Unreal Engine while porting and shipping the code, toolchain, and games on a variety of platforms, he has worked with engineers and artists alike to shape and enhance game development for countless titles. He plans to bring all this to bear at Giant Squid, helping to build amazing games with a wonderfully talented team.
