Why You Can Trust Rick's Advice...

Rick is an expert in both game development AND personal development. Here's a quick snapshot...

Rick Davidson has been making video games for a living for more than 10 years as a Designer, Producer, Creative Director, and Executive Producer, creating games for console, mobile, PC and Facebook. He founded an Indie company, Inspirado Games, which was acquired in 2012 by Electronic Arts / PopCap. He has worked on cool IPs such as Mario, Transformers, Captain America and Mortal Kombat and created successful new IPs from scratch (such as "GardenMind" which was nominated for Canadian Game of the Year in the social / mobile category).

As a qualified Career Coach, Rick has helped more than 1000 people achieve their dream of making games for a living - both as Indie Game Developers and as valuable game industry employees. As a qualified Life Coach, Rick is constantly helping people get clear on what they want and take actions to achieve it.

Other nifty (and relevant) things include having a Masters Degree in Organisational Psychology and being a part-time instructor at the Vancouver Film School's prestigious Game Design Program (being voted "Instructor Of The Year" on two separate occasions).

This is what people have said about Rick...

Rick Davidson is truly an exceptional advisor, instructor and person. His approach to learning development and mentoring is above reproach. I highly recommend Rick!

Peter Maurice, Development Director at Electronic Arts

Rick is a true role model. His love for life and his "Carpe Diem" lifestyle choices are truly admirable and shine through in his teaching. Rick left me with a "fire in the belly", a true desire to be great.

Simon Jenkins, Game Designer / Producer at Fluik Entertainment

Rick's personality and teaching style lead to one of the best educational and personal learning experiences I've ever had at an educational institution.

Luke Takeuchi, Project Manager at Kabam

It was an absolute honour to have Rick as a teacher. His training made me learn more about myself than my entire life leading up to his class has.

Trevor Da Silva, Quality Assurance, VMC / EA

Working with Rick means getting things done and having a great time doing it. He is excellent at looking at the big picture and is always open to innovative ideas wherever they come from...

Jon Sabella, Character Artist at Warner Bros / NetherRealm Studios

With a healthy combination of humor and honesty, Rick manages to fascinate with his experience and wisdom from the industry to a more personal level...

Mark Kazachinsky, Game Design Student, Vancouver Film School

"I highly recommend Rick!" -- Peter Maurice, Electronic Arts
