About Jeffery Simpson
My name is Jeffery Simpson.
I attended high school in Kelowna and earned a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of British Columbia: Okanagan. While at university, I was an editor with the student newspaper and interviewed political figures from across the political spectrum, such as Premier Ujjal Dosanjh and Prime Minister Stephen Harper. As a freelance writer I’ve written for local newspapers like The Kelowna Daily Courier, gaming websites like IGN and independent publications like The Georgia Straight.
Since 2010 I have been working in Vancouver's video game industry, employed by some of the gaming's largest companies. Dealing with fans of the games I've worked on, I've been able to take feedback from passionate, and opinionated people and turn that feedback into constructive solutions. In 2018 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for city council in White Rock, B.C.
I am currently a Community Strategist at Hinterland Game Studio.
