DesignerJonathan “JD” Straw began his career in the gaming industry ten years ago after finishing his degree at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He has spent a great portion of that time working as an artist/animator for a studio sucked up by the THQ machine. During his time as an artist, JD began studying computer science under the tutelage of some of his engineering colleagues. By 2005, he was creating small indie games and mods for major AAA titles in his spare time. Eventually he set out on his own to transition his career from artist to designer. Since then, he has worked as a lead and senior designer on Sony and Disney projects before making the great exodus from Los Angeles up to the Bay Area to join the TellTale Team.
JD is also an avid motorcyclist, amateur astronomer, home medher (maker of honey wine,) pen and paper RPer, and ex-military intelligence.
