By day, Nick Ahrens has been working as a creative and production executive spanning editorial, development, marketing, and more for 15 years in and around the video game and entertainment industries.
Originally hailing from Minneapolis, Nick started his career at Game Informer Magazine producing and writing content for the print magazine as well as managing the Webby Award-winning editorial website. Moving to sunny Los Angeles, he took up a partnership at the critically-acclaimed pop culture gallery/marketing agency iam8bit working on one-of-a-kind projects with companies such as Nintendo and Activision as well as opening a physical gallery/store in the heart of Echo Park on Sunset Blvd.
Eventually wanting to satisfy his childhood dreams to make video games, Nick joined independent developer Hidden Variable Studios serving as Executive Producer and Game Director. While at HVS, he worked on several successful titles such as the critically acclaimed Bag It! and award-winning Threes. Most recently, Nick spent the majority of 2019 embedded with MGM Studios as a full-time Consulting General Manager.
By night (but mostly by day), Nick strives to chase everything photography.
