Two of Microsoft’s rising stars have landed onto Forbes “30 Under 30” list in the video games category: Jessie Coombs, 28, and Andrew Kim, 22. Forbes’ third annual “30 Under 30” lists feature the “brightest stars in 15 different fields under the age of 30.”
Forbes wrote that Coombs, one of only three women on the list, “is a senior producer within the core publishing organization of Microsoft Game Studios, and has helped drive several multimillion dollar games, including ‘Halo Reach,’ ‘Gears of War: Judgment,’ ‘Sunset Overdrive’ and ‘Destiny.’ Outside of work, she's a passionate board game enthusiast and ‘Magic the Gathering’ player.”
Kim, whose Microsoft News Center profile illuminates his unusual entry into Microsoft, gets this write-up from Forbes: “While he was a student at the Art Center College of Design in California, visual and industrial designer Andrew Kim created a project that proposed radical redesigns and rebranding for technology giant Microsoft. Now he's working at the company and helping create the next generation of Xbox products. He also maintains a popular design blog, Minimally Minimal.”
