Brenda Romero, née Brathwaite, began her career in 1981 when a love for D&D drew her to work at Sir-Tech, which was based in her home town of Ogdensburg, New York. She remained there, working on the Wizardry series and Jagged Alliance, for 18 years before she left to follow an eclectic path, developing titles from Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes to Playboy: The Mansion as well as a series of personal boardgames. In 2008 she became chair of the game development department at Savannah College of Art and Design, leaving to join social game developer Slide and later Lolapps as creative director. With John Romero, who she later married, she founded Loot Drop in 2010, developing Ravenwood Fair and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Commander. Following Loot Drop’s demise, she became game designer in residence at the University of California. Her most recent game is Gunman Taco Truck.
