Cian (pronounced Key-in) has been making games in one form or another since he was 10 years old. From drag n’ drop tools like RPG Maker to building his own game in C++, Cian has used many different tools and dived into many different disciplines when building games. A member of the 2015 Worcester Polytechnic Institute graduating class, Cian spent the past 10 months as a member of Harmonix’s community team and is now a Web Content Manager at the studio – helping to execute the studio’s vision for the web from both a development and marketing standpoint. When not making games professionally Cian enjoys playing rhythm games (both Harmonix’s own and imports like DJ MAX or Beatmania) and JRPGs. He’s also recently started making “music”, or as he puts it – random noises.
