Troy is one of Streamcast’s co-founders. Streamcast is made of four gaming content creators hoping to share and create an industry where Streamcast and its community belongs. Troy brings a wealth of design, photography and marketing knowledge to the Streamcast brand. He’s worked with major brands such as Arla, Adidas, Xbox and Kellogg’s evaluating their campaigns, as well as a freelancer for small business for 10 years. He has a passion for action platformers like Ratchet and Clank and would love to see more young people from his background understand the roles in gaming and feel if they do decide to work in the industry they will belong. He would also love to help push stories from the diaspora in gaming as it’s one of the most immersive and entertaining mediums out there.
