Many thanks to outgoing board director Dr. Kristopher Alexander for his contributions to IO. We wish Kristopher well in his new role at Ryerson University as Professor of Video Games: Design, Broadcasting, and Esports Infrastructure.
In addition to this, Kris and his wife are starting a new venture working with an aspiring chef with special needs, creating a new show and companion App. Kris has also been working on a video game of his own design, which is beginning to pick up steam. We wish Kristopher well in his new endeavours.
