Trip played a key role in establishing Apple’s corporate culture before moving on to found EA, pioneering a revolutionary team-based approach to game development that changed the industry and turned EA into a juggernaut with a roster of highly-successful titles. More recently, Trip founded award-winning developer Digital Chocolate, worked with Skillz on their mobile eSports platform and founded If You Can Company to create games that help children with emotional and educational development.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Trip join us as an advisor,” said 110 Industries founder and Creative Director Sergei Kolobashkin. “From Apple, to EA and beyond, Trip is the rare kind of executive that has been both founder and boots on the ground.
