High 5 Games is pleased to announce the addition of Lorin Jameson to its executive team as Vice President of Technology. Mr. Jameson arrives at H5G with an impressive and extensive background in management, production, and technology, having most recently served as Sony Online Entertainment’s Head of Studio and Executive Director of Development in Austin, Texas.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Lorin into High 5 Games,” said Med Nadooshan, H5G’s Chief Operating Officer. “Lorin has demonstrated the ability to lead large high-achieving teams throughout his career, and we believe he is a perfect fit for High 5 Games during this exciting time of growth.”
After receiving his BS in Physics from the University of Washington, Mr. Jameson analyzed novel fusion systems under the guidance of renowned physicist Robert Bussard. He soon transitioned into the gaming industry, where he has spent upwards of the last 20 years. Starting at Kesmai, an early developer of online games, he worked on the pioneering Air Warrior, an early MMO that was one of the first 3D online games ever created. Mr. Jameson eventually formed his own company, Lodestone Games, where he developed games and technology for companies like Sony, EA, and Turbine. During his almost eight years at Sony Online Entertainment, Mr. Jameson oversaw the development and business strategy for the MMOs DC Universe Online and Star Wars Galaxies.
At High 5 Games, Mr. Jameson will oversee the engineering, QA, and game development divisions.
“I want to make sure High 5 Games continues to develop technologies that work well together and are highly scalable,” said Jameson. “I’m very excited to be joining such a dynamic company as it aggressively pursues new markets in both the real-money and social and mobile environments.”
