The Story of Loren Roosendaal

From a young game developer to an internationally awarded digital transformer & speaker

Early Adventures

Loren discovered his interest in technology, games and the visual arts at a young age. Spending his school day afternoons and evenings, not on homework, but instead on teaching himself to build and modify video games. By age 15 he had found the time to try his hand at anything from computer animation, to 3D modeling, to programming artificial intelligence. Working in, and often leading, international teams, with the internet as the sole means of communication he developed so called total conversions, essentially entirely new games, based on existing technology, which were downloaded and played by millions around the world.

Entrepreneurship

In the years after many adventures followed: Loren worked for international game studios from home, co-founded a game studio in the United States and was involved in the first internet reality series about a game development studio to be broadcast by a major gaming website, all before graduating from Leiden University.

Today Loren runs IC3D Media, a company he founded based on his dream to use the skills and technology from Hollywood and the Video Game Industry to solve real-life problems. Over the years at IC3D Media Loren managed to gather around himself a team of talented developers, designers and artists from around the world.
