Ashley Zeldin Builds Worlds and Communities.

A project manager, software developer, and event organizer (and still occasional sportswriter), Ashley excels at helping others envision and realize their potential.

Ashley has spoken about her failures at conferences on three continents, and was featured in the documentary GameLoading: Rise of the Indies.

Though Ashley started on her path into game production and programming in 2011, she only became a "real" video game developer in 2016 when a game she worked on was shut down (rest in pixels, Outcast Odyssey). Despite the volatility of careers in games, Ashley teaches video game design workshops for kids, and hopes the industry will value quality of life by the time they enter the workforce.

During her 5 years on the board of the Los Angeles chapter of the International Game Developers Association, Ashley coordinated efforts to reunify and reenergize the Los Angeles game development community.

Before she made games, Ashley was a sportswriter, general assignment reporter, copy-editor, "public relations professional" and public-access t.v. production assistant. She earned her BA in Print Journalism from the University of Southern California and her Master of Media Practice from the University of Sydney.

In her free time, Ashley enjoys breaking a sweat—mostly indo-row, pilates or spinning—as well as exploring the outdoors. Ashley's passion for her 5-time Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins is rivaled only by her fondness for food.
