Todd AdamsonCreative DirectorSkydance Interactive

Todd Adamson has always loved two things, video games and creating art. In fact, at age five he was disqualified from a state wide art competition for plagiarizing his work*. His passion for games continued into middle school where he slept outside of a Walmart to get a PS2 on launch day, without adult supervision. Through the skin of his teeth he was able to graduate high school while skipping most classes to produce claymation short films and also garnered the top award in the state for traditional art. Todd dropped out of art college after three months for an opportunity to make games at Treyarch, where he received the Annie Award for best animated video game for his work on Ultimate Spider-Man. Since then Todd has had the privilege to work on iconic franchises such as The Evil Within, Gears of War, and served as Game Director on The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners.
