Game Design and Development Team
Joseph McIntyre, is one of our amazing Game Design & Development Specialist! He's always been surrounded by games, with those games pushing creative thoughts along with joy into his life and now he wishes to give back to the community that kept him going as a child. Joseph does this with the hope of inspiring and collaborating with more creators!
Through hard work, and saving up enough money, Joseph was able to go to Full Sail University to help fill his desire and curiosity about Game Development. The knowledge he gained there was incalculable, and the knowledge he is gaining at 3S helps him embrace my dream even more-so!
And with the goal of having E-Learning be less mundane and more fun, Joseph hopes to inspire and intrigue audiences into thinking about software development in general.
When developing games, he strives to produce the best player experience with mechanics and gameplay, hoping for the player to feel joy and achievement!
Accessibility Support Specialist
Stacie started off as an intern for 3S Tech & Talent, in April 2021. She assisted team members by providing input on accessibility for those who are blind or visually impaired. Being blind herself since 2016 (as a result of domestic violence/intimate partner violence), Stacie has been struggling with and fighting for accessibility of educational materials within her daughter's schools. Even though her daughter is not blind, Stacie feels that all materials need to be accessible in order to have disabled parents become more involved and understand what is happening at their child’s school.
She has helped the 3S team with their government contract procurement process, as well as work on the Anvaya Feats project. She hopes to help in the development of an accessible mobile game for those who are blind or visually impaired. She has been so intrigued in the amount of knowledge each team member has and hopes to grow her knowledge base. She is now a team member, working in the role of Accessibility Support Specialist. She hopes to continue her education in assistive technology and advocacy to help make all of 3S accessible to all!
She plans to complete her Bachelor’s degree in Recreational Therapy. She is going back to Temple University after a ten-year hiatus to complete her degree and plans to finish by 2023.
