AndrewPavlickAndrew Pavlick is a 3D content creator from Western Pennsylvania. Going against sound advice to pursue a degree in Information Technology. He decided to take a gamble and attend Bowling Green State University, where he earned a BFA with a focus in the Digital Arts. Since graduation he has worked on a variety of projects from content creation for mobile games, to training and medical simulation applications, and even 3d printing! Along with freelance and fulltime work, Andrew is also working towards forming a game studio called CAP Games. The studio’s first title, “The Barnstormers,” places the player in the cockpit to battle for first place over iconic air race locations across the globe. The game will be available for both PC & console and will support select VR devices.
