Ace StappSenior Software EngineerBlizzard Entertainment

Ace is a programmer, problem solver, and polymath. His first languages were English and C64 BASIC. He loves to PEEK and POKE and flip bits, even if those bits are in a command list. He's a senior rendering engineer at Vicarious Visions in Albany, where he's been for almost a decade. Ace believes in doing it right the third time and that the best way to find the problems in an architecture is to implement it. Ace made major contributions to hair rendering in both Diablo II: Resurrected and Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy. He also played a large part in the visual effects system for Skylanders: Swap Force and later. He's written a few vfx systems, a number of audio engines, implemented some thread and fiber libraries, built a couple of hair implementations, amid many other major engine systems.
