David J Edery: Biography

I am the co-founder and CEO of Spry Fox, a game development studio focused on making the world a happier place. Spry Fox has developed several hit games including Alphabear, Steambirds, Triple Town, and Realm of the Mad God. Collectively, Spry Fox’s games have been played by over 50 million people worldwide. I also do a bit of consulting on the side through my consulting company, Fuzbi, which I founded a year prior to founding Spry Fox. And before all of this, I worked for Microsoft as the Worldwide Games Portfolio Manager for the Xbox Live Arcade platform (seems like a lifetime ago, now!)

Back while I was working for Microsoft, I co-authored a book called Changing the Game: How Video Games are Transforming the Future of Business. Changing the Game is an overview of the ways that games are helping companies to connect with customers, to attract, train, and motivate employees, and to boost their productivity. Notable press reviews can be found here.

I received an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management in 2005, and a BA in English and American Literature from Brandeis University in 1999.
