Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Chris Aiken, a Hostos Community College and City College of New York Alumni, an avid video game enthusiast, and copywriter. I was born and raised in Spanish Harlem. Over the years, my passions have led me to work in different fields and learn more about the areas I am interested in – video games and writing. This has made me diligent in my work and dedicated to working with a talented group of individuals.
I graduated from Hostos Community College with an A.A.S in Game Design and the City College of New York with a Bachelor’s degree in Advertising and PR. I also worked with Colmena Design, a game design company making games for a difference.
I want to continue pursuing the work that I love and firmly believe that continued learning and dedication pushes you further ahead in this world. I have a voice, I want to tell people what I think and what they need to know about the gaming industry. So if you’re interested, welcome to Renegade Plays!
