Jimmy – Lead Game Designer
Jimmy has been a gamer since he was a toddler pointing out the correct path to anyone playing the family’s Legend of Zelda video game. At age 12, Jimmy was diagnosed with Stargardts Juvenile Macular Degeneration. He lost all central vision by the age of 17. Jimmy’s limited vision changed some gaming options for him, and while attending college for Chemistry at and Physics, he discovered a wide range of RPG and tabletop games. A mathematician at heart, Jimmy analyzed and mentally rated the game play, refining what he considered a “good” game. He brings that analytic mind and creative imagination honed by his limited vision to all his game designs. His aims to create games that are elegant and simple in gameplay but complex and variable in strategy, making them accessible and interesting to non-gamers and gamers alike. Jimmy created the Draxian universe and designed the Legends of Draxia card game. Jimmy is happily married with two beautiful daughters. In his spare time he raises quail, chickens, turkeys, and geese on the family farm. Theresa Weibler, Operations Manager, is his sister.
