TJ Cioffe

game Designer • Developer • Producer

Born and raised in Northeastern New Jersey, I’ve been tinkering with PCs since you could upgrade your CPU with a plug-in module and scripting since my first attempts at making a DOOM level. I currently live in South Brooklyn with my wife, infant daughter and our three (!) cats; and am working towards my MFA in Game Development at the Academy of Art University with an expected graduation of Summer 2024.

I have over 20 years of experience in a variety of fields, positions, and scenarios, ranging from a start-up to a national corporation and from a family-run business to a university research computing lab. I have worked at every level in business, be it intern, employee, manager, director or owner; with experience in roles including developer, db/sys admin, Software Architect & CIO. My passion is building things! Here’s my official resume:
