Developer Profile Q&A: Jess Lebow

Developer Profile Q&A: Jess Lebow - Pirates of the Burning Sea -

Jess Lebow, the Content Director for Flying Lab Software's upcoming MMORPG, Pirates of the Burning Sea, takes some time to answer Jon Wood's questions about himself and the game that he has been working on.

How does one become a Content Director? How did you end up doing what you're doing?

Jess Lebow:

I ask myself that question at least once a week, and I'm not sure there's a standard career path. I took a very circuitous route to get here to be honest. I started out with big dreams of becoming a famous writer and ended up with a creative writing degree when I came out of college. After several years selling beer for a living (which was neither famous, nor did it have anything to do with writing), I finally got my break at a publishing house where I edited the Magic: The Gathering novel line. From there I started writing again. One of my first books caught the attention of the folks at ArenaNet, and I eventually landed a job as the World Designer for Guild Wars. After writing two fantasy games and five fantasy novels, I decided I needed a change of genre, which landed me here at Flying Lab where I took over the reigns of the content team from a fellow writer, John Tynes. That's probably a longer answer than you were looking for, but you asked ;)
