While a childhood spent hand-assembling literary magazines around the dining room table with family sparked Matt Sughrue’s decision to attend BVT, a dream to make video games coupled with the work ethic learned at BVT sparked a lucrative career in the gaming industry.
“I eventually found my way into the video game business as a game designer, where the discipline and production skills I learned at BVT helped me work effectively with artists, programmers, audio engineers, and business people,” Matt said. “After designing over a dozen games for kids, I moved into production management, working for Vivendi and Atari, and with a lot of great developers and brands including Blizzard (Warcraft), Disney, NASCAR, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network.”
Matt is currently the Vice President of Product Development for Alliance Digital Media. He works with budding game developers and helps them complete their games and get them into the marketplace.
