In a former life (before becoming a marketing writer), Dave Ellis spent over 20 years writing for and designing video games. His (tiny) claim to fame in the game industry is winning the 2008 Writers Guild of America award for video game writing for my work on “Dead Head Fred” –the first time an award was given in that category.
Dave has been a Star Trek geek since the age of 7 (DS9 is the best Trek…he’s happy to debate you on that if you disagree). He went to my first con at the age of 14. He collect pinball machines and classic video games (coin-op and console). He’s a huge fan of hockey.
And he’s thrilled to be back at IllogiCon for the third year running, chatting with you fine people about all of his favorite things. “Except hockey, I guess. Unless you WANT to do a hockey panel. I’d be all about that..”
