I make and stream video games.
I’ve worked on a variety of titles like the critically acclaimed real-time strategy games series, Close Combat, first-person shooter, Section 8, and top-selling sports franchises, Madden NFL Football, NCAA Football, and NBA LIVE Basketball.
I’ve spent the past 23 years, combining my love of technology, video games, science fiction, and sports into video games for people to enjoy on their PCs, video game consoles, and mobile devices.
Currently, I’m the Senior Development Director for EA Mobile overseeing all sports mobile development for the EA Tiburon studio which includes Madden NFL 21 Mobile and NBA LIVE Mobile for iOS and Android.
I’m also global co-chair for EA Pride, Electronic Arts’ LGBTQ Employee Resource Group. EA Pride’s mission is to build an inclusive culture and safe environment where LGBTQ employees and our allies can thrive and be a leading force in driving inclusive experiences for employees and players within the gaming community.
I also stream action, adventure, and platform games on Twitch as JFriesTV. My goal is to build an inclusive, safe positive environment for everyone who watches and interacts on my stream.
