Senior Project Manager Chris Stagno didn’t come to play games–or did he? This wheeling, dealing, DM-turned-PM brings over a decade of marketing and advertising experience to Noble Studios…and an affinity for role playing games that runs in the family.
Chris grew up in Shaker Heights, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. He’s been a coast-to-coast wanderer ever since (good thing he’s immune to jet lag), most recently settling in Las Vegas. Maybe he cultivated that adventurous spirit during his English undergrad, where he gained the critical thinking skills that help him solve problems and keep us on track here at Noble. (And around his virtual gaming table, of course.)
After studying English, Chris went on to earn a master’s degree in entertainment technology. He put his production and game design skills to work at a startup after grad school–Evil Genius Designs, which went on to in an IIAPA (themed attractions). Afterward, he took on a project management role at Smith Brothers Agency. It’s been his preferred character class ever since, from Thermo Fisher Scientific and Smith Brothers Agency to BarkleyREI and Formerly Known As Agency.
As a Senior Project Manager, Chris ensures projects progress as intended, checks scopes for alignment with client goals and keeps us on track to deliver creative work that performs. He brings a wealth of experience with website delivery and migration projects, plus social, digital and packaging execution, to his daily duties.
When he’s not managing projects, Chris is managing five (yes, five!) weekly online role playing games, hanging out with his rescue dogs Moxie and Terra, or sharing his love of gaming with his daughter. Of course, he always has time for a quick bite around Las Vegas’s legendary cuisine scene–or for a bookstore run to top up his 500+ RPG book collection.
