I'm Matthew Mercer. I am a Game Producer living in Central Florida.
I am a producer who strives to use my skill set within the games industry to lead teams in creating amazing, player focused games in the most effective and efficient ways possible. I was drawn into becoming a producer through my desire and ability to lead people; my organizational skills; and wanting to help create great games. I’ve often seen and heard of many games being brought down by poor leadership, and I’ve dedicated myself to ensuring my teams do not run into those same problem.
My education has also heavily influenced my career. Since I was 6 to when I was 20 years old, I was very involved in theatre. This made me comfortable with speaking to groups of people and overall raised my ability to communicate, which is a (if not the) key aspect of being a producer. After receiving my AA at Daytona State College I went on to study Game Design at the University of Central Florida where I began specializing in the producer role; leading multiple teams in creating successful games.
Aside from producing I have hobbies such as indoor rock climbing, basketball, theatre, and of course playing video games where I’m often either drawn to competitive multiplayer games like Rainbow Six: Siege, or more story driven titles like CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
