After graduating from UC Davis with a degree in Computer Engineering, Benny had no idea what he wanted to do. His interest lay in video games and wanting to create the random ideas he has from time to time so, naturally, he became a web developer. From that point he eventually fulfilled his life long dream of working at an online advertising agency (sarcasm). Luckily, he ended up at Game Advertising Online (GAO) where the advertising was specifically catered to the gaming industry. At GAO, he not only honed his craft as a web developer but was also able to pick up many business aspects of the gaming industry such as game development and monetization. Using this knowledge he partnered up with cofounder Daniel Pak to fulfill his second life long dream of starting a company where he can bring to life not only his ideas but the ideas of all those he works with (not sarcasm).
Roles: Chief Technical Officer, Producer, Lead Programmer, Game Design
From a very young age Daniel developed a love for video games. With the pursuit of video game development in mind, Daniel graduated from the University of California Davis with a degree in Computer Engineering. His desire to work in the gaming industry landed him at Sony Computer Entertainment working in the Quality Assurance department for Playstation's first party titles. Uncertain his path at Sony would lead him to his goal of game development, Dan decided to take a detour from game development into the fast growing internet. In 2006, he then joined Trancos, Inc., an online advertising company specializing in online lead generation and customer aquisition. Following his time at Trancos, he found his way back to the world of gaming through online advertising as the Managing Director of Game Advertising Online (GAO), a United Business Media company. GAO provided a window into player aquisition and the monetization of online and mobile games. With his management experience and the knowledge of online advertising and game monitization in his back pocket, Daniel now enters the gaming world as an independent mobile app developer cofounding Cube8 with a fellow colleague and friend, Benny Lu.
