T. Elliot Cannon is a twenty-four year AAA video game industry designer, having worked on multiple million copy-selling video games at studios across the United States, Canada, Germany, Hungary, and China. Some of his personal AAA favorites are Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Warhammer 40k DMO, Crysis Warhead, and Dungeon Defenders 2.

When he’s not working on video games, he’s writing the follow up to Iron Will Rust or hidden away on a barrier island designing his own games and worlds. He is an avid motorcyclist, writer, and believer in the magic of adventure.
