Leadership

Thomas Williamson

CEO & Co-Founder

Thomas founded Grove Street Games in 2007 after working as the Technical Director at Artificial Studios. His many years of experience as a project lead has given Grove Street the ability to master a balance between dedicated, passionate employees and successfully crafted games. Over the years, these games have become world-wide critical and commercial hits.

Thomas lives in Gainesville along with his family and enjoys running, college football, and debating movie details.

Michael Owen

CTO & Co-Founder

Mike’s journey started with a BS at the University of Florida. He then spent 6 years as a hardware level programmer for a Polysomnography company. He came back to Gainesville to work for 15 yrs as a Systems Programmer before embarking on his greatest adventure of helping to start and make Grove Street Games amazing.

Mike has spent over a decade working with some of the best people in the industry.

Morgan Hughes

COO & Art Director

Starting as an intern in 2008, Morgan worked her way up to leading the art team at Grove Street Games by 2010. Over the past decade, her expertise grew until it extended to all studio operations, officially becoming COO in 2019. While still directing game art on all of our projects, you’ll find Morgan behind the scenes managing production and outsourcing.

Sometimes though, she’s back to her roots, huddled in a corner with an art intern nerding out over a fancy new material.
