“As gamers, we idolize the past and we worship the future. It’s the present that we tend to treat shabbily.” Colin Campbell, IGN
Devin is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Communication program. He has worked as an Apple Technician and Salesmen at Abt Electronics (2007-2012), becoming its head Apple “Genius” in 2011. As one of the Co-Founders of gigga-bites, Devin wanted to integrate his love of gaming with his habit of eating lots of fast food.
He began to create music in 2009 based on classic game melodies. His latest album “D Tech 3” again features various styles of music from different generations of gaming’s past while preserving the original song’s nostalgic qualities. Devin also has produced several pieces of graphic art for companies in the past including nationally trademarked logos.
Devin enjoys proselytizing the gigga-bites concept and helped attract the company’s first angel investor.
When not fixing somebody’s computer or playing Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Devin spends his time with his friends, often discussing the future of the medium they love. Besides eating fast food and gaming, Devin is also an avid sports fan as well – his favorite sport being football (Go Bears!). He’s a big tech junkie – always looking out for the latest and greatest. Devin lives in the Chicagoland area, and he can be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @DTechNation!
